Street scene, Cleveland Museum of Art, Ohio.

Nesta Spink in her 1978 Ann Arbor exhibition, and the current (2021) Cleveland Museum of Art website give this the title 'Shops at Chester'. 1 Whistler is known to have drawn one scene in that city, The Rows, Chester [M.1588], in 1899/1890. However, this could be a scene in London or France. Whistler drew, etched and painted several subjects like the old clothes shop at right.
