The page contains a sketch, drawn horizontally, of a multi-arched and buttressed bridge over a river with a building on the bridge at far right. Finberg noted it simply as ‘Bridge’,1 but the location has been confirmed as the town of Poissy.2 (For further information on the town, see under folio 86 recto; D23868.) The structure corresponds to the old bridge of Poissy, which had buildings, including mills, upon it. Ruined portions of the bridge remain in the present day, after it was destroyed in the Second World War.3 Turner roughly indicates vegetation on the riverbank in the foreground and trees at far left.
