Speke Hall dates from 1875. An impression was inscribed '1st proof' and dated '1875' ().
Whistler stayed at Speke Hall near Liverpool several times including January to March 1875. On 1 February 1875 he wrote from Speke:
'The etchings and drypoints are getting on famously - I have quite got back into my old delight in the work and think I shall have some pretty things to show you soon - ' 1
He was working on five etchings of Speke Hall and the vicinity, including Shipbuilder's Yard (K.146), The Little Forge (K.147), Speke Shore (K.144), and The Dam Wood (K. 145).
