The copper plate bears the maker's oval stamp: 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' It is close in size to the plates for York Street, Westminster 382, The Fur Cloak - Mrs Herbert 367, Nora Quinn 364, Passages de l'Opéra 386, The Busby 368, plates from a range of dates between 1887 and the 1890s.
It remained 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 left corner.
