In this slight sketch, the outline of Southwark Cathedral and the waterfront along the south bank of the River Thames are shown. To the left are slight indications of piledrivers upstream of Old London Bridge, for one of the coffer-dams out of which the piers of the bridge’s replacement would rise. Work had begun in March 1824, as discussed under folio 22 recto (D17954), and Turner seems to have taken the opportunity to revisit the works on 9 November, Lord Mayor’s Day. See also folios 23 verso–24 recto and 25 recto (D17957–D17958, D17960).
