John Herschel recorded it as "Faint. The preceding nucleus of the compound nebula figured in fig. 2, Plate III." The compound nebula has components NGC 1929, 1934, 1935 and NGC 1936.
Shapley and Lindsay ("A Catalogue of Clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud", Irish Astronomical Journal, Vol. 6, 1963) give the grouping dimensions of 4.5' x 1.7' and remark "bright loose stars in dense nebulosity."
According to Henize, it measures 1.1' east-west and 1.0' north-south. It has a slightly irregular outline, is not elongated and shows some structure.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a cluster+nebulosity in the LMC.
"cluster of stars and small nebulae, including also NGC 19341937; LMC."
