Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, there are two studies of essentially the same subject here. At the top is a view up the River Thames past shipping towards the barely indicated Old London Bridge, with the tower of Southwark Cathedral to the south-west. Below is the same view without shipping, with the bridge shown in a little more detail, albeit still slight.
More than half the drawings in this sketchbook show the river around the bridge, and are likely to date from 1824; see the Introduction.
