The copper plate bears the maker's oval stamp: 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' It is the same size and same extremely elongated proportions as other plates etched in Belgium and London in 1887, Gold House, Brussels 336 and The Canal, Ostend 352 (which also bears the Hughes & Kimber stamp).
The plate was in Whistler's studio at his death and was bequeathed to Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958), who gave it to the University of Glasgow in 1935. It was cancelled posthumously with a diagonal line across the lower right corner.
