This is an original etching by British artist Sir Francis Seymour Haden.  The title of this etching is: Penton Hook, Sur La Tamise, it was created in 1864.  The image measures 6X9 1/2 inches.  It appears in the Schneiderman catalog as image number 65.  This image appears to be the 5th state of 5 although it appears to be written 1st state in pencil lower left border.  This etching is pencil signed by the artist and shows nice plate tone in the sky and water.

"Penton Hook Lock is the sixth lowest lock of forty four on the non-tidal reaches of the River Thames in England. It faces an island which was until its construction a pronounced meander (a hook) and is on the site of its seasonal cutoff. It is against the left bank marking the church parish medieval border of Laleham and Staines upon Thames in Surrey for many centuries. Until 1965 their county was Middlesex. At 266 ft (81 m) it is the third longest lock on the river." 

Whistler who was Haden's brother in law worked together creating many etchings from nature in the 1860's.  Is is possible that the figure on the right side of this composition is in fact Whistler?  It looks to be a man sketching.    A few years later Haden and Whistler had a falling out and so never would create art together again.
