Garton writes, page 31: "Most of the studies for the print were made Castle Combe [Wiltshire] one moonlight night. In his autobiography, Tanner describes their midnight sortie. They worked surrounded by the snores of sleeping villagers, hearing every creak of their bedsprings, 'it was an eerie feeling, working through the small hours in that empty village where the moonlight lay in sheets of silver so bright and constant that we drew as easily as by the day.'"
