Russell Flint and Cecilia passed by a central London gallery which was displaying this painting in the window. As the passed, Russell Flint felt there was something 'not quite right' about it, so he approached the gallery owner and after a little negotiating, took the painting back to his studio in Peel street.

Originally, the girl on the right had a basket on her head as well, however this made the painting 'top heavy'. So, in an attempt to improve the piece Russell Flint removed the basket on the right, which is why there appears to be a lighter patch on the wall above her head.
