Turner’s viewpoint here is from the cliffs above the north bay at Scarborough, near the junction of the present Queen’s Parade with Albert Road, from the north-west rather than the north as stated by Finberg. It records similar material to another sketch in the sequence (D11949; Turner Bequest CL 30) but from a more distant viewpoint. The view from the same spot, but looking in a northerly direction, is recorded in another sketch (D11927; Turner Bequest CL 11). These sketches are separated in the present pagination, but the connection suggests that the numbering given by Finberg might have corresponded to their original order.
