This page contains two sketches, the largest of which is a view of Lanslebourg-Mont-Cenis, a town in Savoy at the foot of the Col du Mont Cenis. Turner’s viewpoint is from the west looking towards the town with the old church (now a museum) near the centre. The composition continues on the opposite sheet of the double-page spread, see folio 69 (D14104).
Also on the page is a separate, smaller sketch of mountains, parallel with the left-hand edge of the sketchbook.
