Item is part of a series of drawings by British artist J.R. Smith of the excavation of Beacon Hill. The Boston Public Library owns both the original pencil and watercolor sketches and a series of lithographs by J.H. Bufford & Company. Title is likely from the Bufford & Company lithograph and not Smith's title. There is no indication that Smith titled his sketches.
