Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook upright, but continued on folio 21 (D06210). See folios ‘View of a town, with trees and bridge in foreground’
Despite his question-mark, Hill seems to be right in proposing that this is a view of Richmond Bridge seen from further away than in folios 19 verso–20 (D06207–D06208). Folios 21 verso–22 (D06211–D06212) have a more distant view again.
