With the page turned vertically, there are three or four rapid, rough studies apparently showing shipping and waves off a coastline, where the buildings may include a lighthouse. Turner’s inscription at the top is illegible, and there appear to be one or two other brief annotations. The viewpoint is perhaps a boat in the Channel. See the sketchbook’s Introduction for the many slight coastal views scattered through it, and compare folio 34 recto opposite (D35547).
There is some brown staining at the gutter, possibly indicating water damage in the 1928 Tate flood.
