There are two views of the coast along the Firth of Forth on this page. Taking up the bottom two-thirds of the page and continuing on folio 48 (D13543) is a harbour with a pavilion-shaped structure. Several boats are shown moored nearby and there is a small crowd of people and horses along the waterside presumably loading or unloading the boats. At the right of the drawing (folio 48) is what looks like the fortified island of Inchgarvie. If Finberg is right in describing this as ‘On the North Side of the Firth of Forth’ then the harbour must, as David Wallace-Hadrill has suggested, be North Queensferry.1 At the top of the page and extending slightly to folio 48 is a sketch of a town on the banks of the Forth. This may perhaps be North or South Queensferry.
