Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. Identifying the subject, Hill reproduces this as if continued to the left across folios 127 verso–128 and then folio 125 verso and its own recto (D06340–D06341, D06337) to form a continuous panorama from the North Terrace. This configuration is impossible in reality, and moreover the horizon line is not the same throughout.
