Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. See Introduction for Turner’s travels in North Wales in 1808, and his fondness for fishing. The subject is likely to be Llangollen, already a tourist centre. For probable views in this sketchbook see note to folio 77 verso (D06960; Turner Bequest CIV 76a). As all these are drawn with the book inverted, Turner may have been working from the back of it at this point.
