Catalogue entry

This is a slight sketch, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, and perhaps noted at the fair at which Turner’s sketches of fairground activities were made, on folios 9 recto, 11 recto, 14 recto, 15 recto and verso, 16 recto and 20 recto (D00270, D00273, D00275–D00278, D00285).
