The drawing is inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation. The same pier or fortification is drawn on folios 85 verso–86 recto (D02750–D02751). It is probably the East Side Pier at Whitby, one of two moles that protect the harbour formed by the mouth of the River Esk as it flows into the North Sea.
A long sequence of sketches on the Yorkshire coast between Scarborough and Whitby runs between folios 83 verso and 98 verso (D02746–D02776).
