A Thames Embankment scene etched after Roussel's debut as a print-maker at Dowdeswell's in spring of 1889.

The Stamford University Museum of Art not only has the copper plate for the etching, but also an impression in black and white, an impression with portions heightened with a gouache-like medium and a gouache drawing of the subject. According to Mackay, the drawing and proof were made in 1920 when Roussel was developing his new Roussel Medium.
