Here Turner pictures the German city of Frankfurt from the banks of the Main, looking downstream towards the Cathedral and Alte Brücke (Old Bridge). A small river island known as the Maininsel lies directly beneath the bridge, situated closer to the Sachsenhausen side of the Main (pictured left). Though the Maininsel is not clearly visible in this sketch, the two old mills at either side of the bridge’s balustrade can be seen.
