Another version of this subject, entitled View of Heath Street by Night, is in Tate Britain. Grimshaw's Hampstead views date to when he took a studio in Manresa Road, Chelsea, in the early 1880s. This enabled him to have greater access to London subjects. The upper part of Heath Street was one of the original lanes leading into the village of Hampstead. It was lengthened in the 1887-89 Town Improvements scheme to link it with the new Fitzjohn's Avenue.
