The copper plate bears the maker's oval stamp: 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' It was the same size as many plates of this period including Gateway, Chartreuse, near Loches [421], Château Touraine [410] and The Hangman's House, Tours [393].
The plate 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 from just below the centre of the left edge to just above the lower right corner.
