Here Turner looks west from beside Forthburn Beck below the south side of the house (since demolished), towards the bridge, which still stands. The drawing continues across half of folio 4 verso opposite (D12315; CLVI 31a), showing the south bank of the stream. There are further double-page drawings of Streatlam on folios 3 verso–4 recto and 5 verso–6 recto (D12313, D12314, D12317, D12264; CLVI 30a–31, 32a–3). For more on its history see the entry for D12314 and the introduction to the tour.
The pencil number ‘32’ may obscure or reinforce John Ruskin’s customary red ink foliation, which is evident only faintly and intermittently in this much-rearranged book (see the introduction to the sketchbook).
