Little Market Place, Tours dates from September 1888. Beatrice and James Whistler stayed in Loches in the Loire Valley, France, during their honeymoon in the autumn of 1888 and visited Tours some time between 15 and 27 September.
In Tours Whistler made at least six plates including Rue des Bons Enfants, Tours [392], The Hôtel de la Croix Blanche [395], The Market Place, Tours [388], and The Hangman's House, Tours [393].
