Turner Bequest XIV B
Pencil and watercolour on white wove paper, 272 x 215 mm

Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This drawing probably belongs to the early part of 1793, and seems to have been executed en suite with the view of Oriel Lane (Tate D00156; Turner Bequest XIV C). Another version dating from about the same time is in a private collection.1
