This classical seaport is related in general terms to the drawings at the front of the book, for example folios 1 verso–2 (D06181–D06182) also including a harbour, and to many variants of such subjects in the contemporary Studies for Pictures: Isleworth sketchbook (Tate D05491–D05617; D40568–D40574; D41505; Turner Bequest XC).
