Catalogue entry

From the entrance to the harbour south of the church tower at East Looe on the right, the cupola of West Looe church is seen on the left. At the top centre there appears to be a continuation of the east end of the East Looe church and buildings beyond it outside the right-hand edge of the main drawing. For other views, see under folio 115 verso (D08582; CXXIII 112a).
