Catalogue entry

The left-hand two thirds of the page form a continuation from the view on folio 10 verso opposite (D21991), under which the subject is discussed. There is a rough pencil line separating the main drawing from a slighter one made at the outer edge with the page turned vertically, showing what appears to be a different bridge, possibly with boats on a river or canal in the foreground. For other views of Blenheim, see under folio 2 verso (D21978).
