For Turner’s views of the Pool and City of London in this sketchbook see note to folio 12 (D05785). This slight sketch is one of three including St Dunstan-in-the-East, an ancient church with a Gothic steeple by Sir Christopher Wren; others with more surrounding detail are folios 14 and 15 (D05788, D05789). Here the church is seen above wharves and steps leading down to the riverside. As Hill observes, the viewpoint is from the water, and is probably from a boat near the Custom House.
