The composition is continued to the right on folio 13 recto (D00087). Another version of the view is Tate D00112 (Turner Bequest VII E) which was perhaps originally a leaf from this sketchbook. A finished watercolour of the subject is in the Bury Art Gallery.1 Finberg notes that ‘the only colours used are Indian Ink, brown, gamboge [yellow] and blue.’
