The subject might indicate a date in the 1880s, when it could have been painted in St Ives in 1884 or in Dieppe in 1885, but the colour, brushwork and detail suggests a later date. It could equally have been painted in London or Paris.

Comparable subjects and treatment are seen in Blue and Orange: Sweet Shop [YMSM 263], A Grey Note: Village Street [YMSM 265], and Carlyle's Sweetstuff Shop [YMSM 375].
