Note: 1. The Harrisville, Utah, collector lived near Ogden in the 1890s and may have acquired the painting at an auction held by Schafer in Ogden 18-21 November 1891. 2. Two paintings with almost the same title were offered as lot 97 on page 7 and lot 195 on page 11 of the catalog of a 17 November 1885 auction in San Francisco but there is not enough information in that catalog to either include or exclude the possibility that one of them is this painting.
