Recto, above; verso, below:
The copper plate is the same as or close in size to The Cock and the Pump , The Fleet: Monitors , Jubilee Place, Chelsea  and to two plates bearing the oval stamp of Hughes & Kimber (Palaces, Brussels , Her Majesty's Fleet: Evening ). The original large copper sheets were probably stamped before being cut into smaller sizes. Thus some Hughes & Kimber plates do not have a stamp on the verso. Given the consistency in size of these etchings from 1887, it seems likely they were all made by Hughes & Kimber.
The copper plate for Grand'Place, Brussels was in Whistler's studio at his death and was bequeathed 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.
