A hand-written pen note in this print names other printmakers that worked on this print. It was a common practice for renowed printmakers to hire others to work on parts of a print. In this case, the print was reduced by Sangster, Widnell did the outline, while W. Taylor etched the background and sky, later redone by Westwood.
