The drawings between folios 20 verso and 34 verso (D40967, D17979) include rapid studies and notes of barges, flags, costumes and bridges along the River Thames, and appear to record or relate to the Lord Mayor’s Day procession of 9 November 1824, as discussed in the sketchbook’s Introduction. Here there are three registers of rapid sketches. At the top barges approach what is probably Westminster Bridge from the north, as on folio 32 recto opposite (D17974); below are slight studies of City barges.
