Impressions taken from this plate  (22)
The copper plate has not been located. It was a size used by Whistler over a long period from the 1860s to late 1880s. It was close in size (and closest in date) to The Old Swan Brewery, Chelsea 105, as well as similar in size to some earlier plates such as Seymour, Standing 010 and several later plates such as Barges, Dordrecht 262.
