Catalogue entry

The fountain shown here, drawn with the page turned horizontally, appears to be the same as that in the sketch on folio 95 verso (D02605), a scene possibly in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Technical notes:
There is a smear of brown colour from the drawing on folio 97 recto opposite (D02608).
