Catalogue entry

Most of the leaf is given to separate sketches of small boats and river incident, but at lower left there is a slight continuation of the view of the Custom House on folio 43 verso (D07037; Turner Bequest 39a). See Introduction to the sketchbook for plans in the mid 1820s for a series of London subjects, including the Custom House
