Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this sketch continues on folio 63 verso opposite (D22444). It includes the outlines of the twin toll-booths and Tuscan archway at the southern end of Hammersmith Bridge, looking north-west through trees on the rural Barnes bank of the River Thames. As discussed under folio 58 verso (D22434), where other Hammersmith views are mentioned, Turner’s studies of the bridge seem to have a rather provisional air, and may show it still under construction before its October 1827 opening. The trees appear to continue a little way onto folio 65 recto opposite (D22447).
