Old Clothes Shop, Houndsditch is unfinished and therefore difficult to date. However, it could well date from 1887, when it is known Whistler was working in Houndsditch, or later in the 1890s, up to 1901. 1
In 1887 Whistler worked in Petticoat Lane and other sites in the East End of London including St James's Place, at the heart of the Jewish enclave, the site of the great Synagogue and a number of small family-run shops, where he etched, for instance, St James's Place, Houndsditch  and Cutler Street, Houndsditch .
