The copper plate bears the maker's rectangular stamp, 'HUGHES & KIMBER / MANUFACTURERS/ RED LION SQUARE / FLEET STREET / LONDON'. The same stamp appears on three other Thames plates of 1859 of the same size (i.e. Stevens' Boat Yard 056, Black Lion Wharf 054) and several portraits, all of 1859-1860 (Z. Astruc, Editor of 'L'Artiste' 036, Whistler with a hat 044, Fumette's Bent Head 058, Venus 060, Arthur Haden 066, Mr Mann 073, Axenfeld 068 and Riault (The Wood Engraver) 069).
It was published with the 'Thames Set' in 1871. It was cancelled with four vertical lines plus diagonal lines from corner to corner.
The plate was acquired by Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) in 1896. It is now in the Freer Gallery of Art. 13
