*Date: Only one impression of this work has been observed and it is undated. The following factors taken together yield the c. 1926 date designation: Fiene did a number of lithographs in the mid- to late1920's, (especially in 1926) with similar tonal qualities (see Thumbnails Chronological.); the paper used (thin laid) is more characteristic of pre-1928 prints. As noted below the annotation style suggests an early print, before a more regular annotation pattern was established.

**Printer: All of Fiene lithographs for which the printer is known were printed by either George C. Miller in New York or Edmond Desjobert in Paris. That this lithograph is annotated "New York" suggests Miller was the printer.

***Annotations: The annotation described above is unique to the only observed impression. Designation of place (here "New York") has not been observed on any other Fiene print suggesting a print made early in Fiene's career before he developed more standard annotation formats.
