"Acording to Robert Bayne, owner/archivist of the remains of the records of Heaton, Butler and Bayne, and descendant of Robert Turnill Bayne, founder of the firm, the reference numbers on the drawing equate with a date about 1900. but it is not possible to attribute it to a particular artist because the records are not complete." — Rupert Maas, p. 29
