Prior to the extensive area of rust in the plate and prior to the removal of much etched work in the sky. Printed on heavy cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edges. Mild time toning within the mat window area. Weak lower platemark with three small strips of archival tape for support, verso.

Haden etched this extensive landscape and Yacht Tavern, Erith (see following) in the company of his friend, the famous French painter-etcher, C.F.Daubigny. The image shows the marshes on the north side of the Thames at Purfleet, opposite Erith, a few miles to the east of London. A very rare state of this dramatic image.
