With the sketchbook turned horizontally, Turner filled this page with a view of the medieval city of Angers, located on the River Maine close to its confluence with the Loire. The structures recorded are the bridge running across the scene as the Ponts des Treilles and the tower of the Church of La Trinité.1 Turner made extensive study of Angers in this volume. A list of his drawings of the city is provided in the sketchbook introduction.
