Catalogue entry

With the page turned horizontally, Mount Edgcumbe is seen across Plymouth Sound from the shore at Stonehouse, with a wide variety of shipping at anchor. The subjects as far as folio 127 recto (D09358) are all identified or presumed sites within a few miles in and around Plymouth, suggesting a series of fairly short excursions.
