Impressions taken from this plate  (29)
The copper plate has no maker's mark. It is close in size to another unmarked plate of the same date, Little Court 244, and to several later plates including After the Sale, Clothes Exchange, Houndsditch 357 and Gray's Inn Place 281, both dated 1887.
It was published by Messrs Dowdeswell and Thibaudeau with A Set of Twenty-six Etchings (the 'Second Venice Set') in 1886. It was cancelled with irregular crossed diagonal lines.

The plate is now in the Art Institute of Chicago. 4
