The copper plate of Rag Pickers, Quartier Mouffetard, Paris has not been located; no other plate was this size.

Auguste Delâtre (1822-1907) probably printed the copper plate in Paris. On 29 June 1859 Francis Seymour Haden, Sr (1818-1910), asked Delâtre if Ignace-Henri-Jean-Théodore Fantin-Latour (1836-1904) could bring the plate of 'Petit interieure de Montmartre' to London. 16
