A rich impression with plate tone, printed on laid paper. Signed and dated in the plate. Housed in a 16 x 20-inch archival mat, suitable for framing. The etching was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1860. Whistler shows the old timber frame buildings, brick and stonework, rope, smoking factory chimney, old boats and general decay.

He details quaintly constructed houses along the riverbank, with people idling on the waterfront and glimpses of trees in the distance.
