Possible candidates for exhibits under this title in 1876 include Cremorne, No. 1 [YMSM 163] and Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Gardens [YMSM 166]. It is less likely that it was Nocturne: Black and Gold - The Fire Wheel [YMSM 169] or Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Falling Rocket [YMSM 170]. It could well have been Nocturne in Black and Gold: Entrance to Southampton Water [YMSM 179]. All date from the mid 1870s.
