Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. These strips of riverside are not at Greenwich but in the City and on the south bank. There is a detail of the tower of the church of St Magnus the Martyr at upper left and St Paul’s at lower right. For further views of the City see folios 21 verso–22 verso (D06761–D06763).
