With the page turned vertically, there are two slight studies here of Old London Bridge looking east from upstream, indicating ongoing construction work on the coffer-dams out of which the piers of the bridge’s replacement would rise. An outline of one of the dams is seen in the lower view. Work had begun in March 1824, as discussed under folio 22 recto (D17954), and Turner seems to have taken the opportunity to revisit the works on 9 November, Lord Mayor’s Day; see also folios 23 recto and 23 verso–24 recto (D17956–D17958).
