With the page turned horizontally, the view is from the north-east, with the north-west tip of Drake’s Island aligned with Penlee Point beyond Mount Edgcumbe in the distance on the right. The open expanse in the middle distance is the Hoe. Turner’s viewpoint is the Tavistock road, now North Hill, but later developments impede the view today. 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.
Some brown staining at the bottom matches that on folio 99 verso opposite (verso of D09325).
