Impressions taken from this plate  (1)
The copper plate has not been located. It was close in size to three other plates, Battersea Reach [96] and Amsterdam, from the Tolhuis [99], which date from 1863, and Draped Model [109], which dates from slightly later. According to Whistler, the plate was destroyed after only two proofs had been printed. 4
