Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, on the right is a slight continuation of the view of the semaphore tower on Deal’s seafront on folio 4 verso opposite (D35764). The boats occupying the rest of the page were presumably observed off the town. For other views of Deal see under folio 4 recto (D35763).
