Finberg read Turner’s inscription as ‘Do’ (i.e. ditto), presuming that this referred back to Turner’s inscription ‘E W Looe’ on folio 115 verso (D08582; CXXIII 112a); it may alternatively be ‘Lo’ as an abbreviated form of the place name. In either eventuality, this slight sketch appears to show a view from Hannafore Road, West Looe, looking east across the harbour with the mast of a boat or small ship at an angle suggesting that it is beached, to the coast beyond East Looe. For other views, see under folio 115 verso.
