The copper plate has no maker's mark. It is close in size to several other plates done on Whistler's honeymoon including Railway-Station, Voves 387, Court of the Monastery of St. Augustine, Bourges 403, and Notre-Dame, Bourges 402.
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.
