Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this drawing continues across folio 67 verso opposite (D22452). It shows the wooden Old Putney Bridge, looking west from the direction of Barnes on the south bank. To the left are trees on the opposite bank at Fulham. For other sketches along the Thames between the bridges at Hammersmith and Putney, see under folio 58 verso (D22434).
