The drawings between folios 20 verso and 34 verso (D40967, D17979) include rapid studies and notes of barges, flags, costumes and bridges along the River Thames, and appear to record or relate to the Lord Mayor’s Day procession of 9 November 1824, as discussed in the sketchbook’s Introduction. Here the pageant is arriving for the Lord Mayor’s swearing-in at the Palace of Westminster. Westminster Hall is lightly outlined on the left; compare the more detailed treatment on the recto (D17976), and see also folios 34 recto and verso (D17978, D17979).
