Catalogue entry

Drawn with the page turned horizontally, this is one of a group of views of Whitby, taken from similar viewpoints in the Inner Harbour. This one is from slightly closer to the town than those on folios 6 recto and 7 recto (D02469, D02470).
For other views of Whitby in this sketchbook, see under D02469.
