When held against the light on the reverse vertical edge a "J. Whatman Turkey Mill 1825" watermark is visible. James Whatman (1702–1759), the elder, was a paper maker and inventor of wove paper, used for high quality art and printing. Together with his son by the same name, James Whatman the Younger (1741–1798), he held a part interest in the establishment at Turkey Mill, near Maidstone, Kent, England.

William James Bennett (1787−1844), was a British-born painter and engraver, also active in the United States where his aquatints of New York City, Niagara Falls, Washington DC, and other important American sites, fetch record prices.
