Catalogue entry

The profile of the hill beyond suggests this is a view of Teignmouth harbour from the south. Arthur Ebdon refers to a drawing of ‘fishing boats in the harbour with Haldon Moor [to the north-west] in the background’, presumably the present work, which he also reproduces.1
For other views of Teignmouth see under folio 71 verso opposite (D08499; CXXIII 68a).
