The wheel is probably part of the machinery of a mill; a similar object appears in Turner’s drawing of Marford Mill, made in the course of the Midland tour (Tate D00339; Turner Bequest XXI L). The carousel was perhaps observed at Wolverhampton; see folio 9 recto (D00270). For other fairground studies in this book see folios 11 recto, 15 recto and verso, 16 recto and 35 verso (D00273, D00276, D00277, D00278, D00311).
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram centre.
