Impressions taken from this plate  (13)
The copper plate has not been located. The copper plate was close in size to Barges, Dordrecht [262] and to several plates dating from 1886 and 1887 including Church Door, Edgware [291], Butcher's Shop, Sandwich, Kent [320], The Abbey Jubilee [296] and Children's Fruit Barrow [347].
It was almost certainly printed after Whistler's death, possibly by Mortimer Luddington Menpes (1860-1938). In a draft catalogue of Whistler's etchings, Joseph Pennell (1860-1926) wrote 'Mr Menpes owns this plate.' 5
