The Little Forge, Liverpool probably dates from 1875, when Whistler visited Speke and Liverpool. Whistler etched Shipbuilder's Yard, Liverpool [142] on the same visit.
One impression is dated '75' in an unknown hand, but possibly with information from the artist (Graphic with a link to impression #K1470102). The drypoint was probably completed and signed in 1879 (i.e. Graphic with a link to impression #K1470602) before being exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery .
