As with several of the 'Naval Review' copper plates, Bunting bears the oval stamp of 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' (i.e. Dry Docks, Southampton [302],The Turret Ship [305], Troopships [307], Her Majesty's Fleet: Evening [310] and Tilbury [312]).
The cancelled plate came with Whistler's estate to Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958), who gave it to the University of Glasgow in 1935. It was cancelled posthumously with a diagonal line across the lower left corner.
