This is a smaller scale and more cursory version of the view of Hamburg’s Hotel Belvedere, depicted on the folio opposite (Tate D30864; Turner Bequest CCCV 22a). With the sketchbook orientated horizontally the spire of St James’ Church (Jacobikirche) is visible. This is continued from the view on Turner Bequest CCCV 22a.
