The Glasgow catalog states: "If, as is thought, this shows Dordrecht, it dates from the same time as several other etchings of Dordrecht: Dordrecht [Glasgow 259], Little Dordrecht [260] and Barges, Dordrecht [Glasgow 262]. Whistler first sold two Dordrecht etchings in November 1886. However, this one was not named specifically."
