This page features an apparently continuous single view of the hills that shelter the harbour of St Peter Port on the east coast of Guernsey. The eighteenth-century defences of Fort St George can be seen high up on the furthest eminence.1 Towards the top right-hand corner can be seen the neo-Gothic tower of Elizabeth College, crowned with its four corner pinnacles, 2 while the outline of the spire of the Town Church can be seen at the foot of the hills, close to the cluster of sail-boats in the harbour area. The buildings of St Peter Port recur several times within in this volume, as outlined in the entry for folio 30 recto (D23576; Turner Bequest CCLII 30).
