A rich impression with drypoint burr and selective plate tone, printed on Japanese mulberry paper (that Whistler reserved for special impressions). Signed with the butterfly in the plate and 'Whistler' in pencil. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Glasgow writes: 'Thames barges, sails furled, lie beached high on the Thames foreshore at Chelsea at low tide. Behind them are two- and three-storey buildings and warehouses. On the buildings are several signs: 'CHELSEA WHARF', 'THOMAS WEEKS, CHELSEA WHARF, ROMAN CEMENT AND LIME', 'CHELSEA WHARF, CLOVER, HAY AND STRAW.' Men are unloading the barges with the aid of carts and horses. There are two tall poles with marker boards at the top, one to right of centre and the other at the far right. SITE Chelsea Wharf was in front and to right of Whistler's house on Lindsey Row, on the River Thames in Chelsea.'
