As part of unpublished Turner research informed by local knowledge, Dr Bernard Richards has suggested that the scene is Dudley High Street,1 although modern development has left little else of the historic fabric of the street intact for comparison. The coach studies on folios 57 recto and verso (D22431, D22432) were presumably made on the same occasion. For adjacent views of Dudley, see under folio 39 recto (D22395).
