The view is past shipping in the Pool of London, west up the River Thames to Old London Bridge and beyond to St Paul’s Cathedral. At the right is the tower of St Magnus the Martyr’s Church, and the drawing continues a little way across folio 17 recto opposite (D17866). It is also continued to the left, with the south bank waterfront, on folio 15 verso (D17863).
More than half the drawings in this sketchbook show the River Thames around Old London Bridge, and are likely to date from 1824; see the Introduction.
