Catalogue entry

This picture of a boat unloading at North Queensferry continues from folio 50 verso (D13548) where the Town Pier is depicted. At the top of the present folio is a slight sketch of another view presumably nearby. The sketch may even be a continuation of the view to the right of the main picture, showing part of Inchgarvie and the Firth of Forth to the south.
Slight damage to the page at the top right has been repaired.
