These slight drawings were made with the page turned horizontally. Finberg later annotated his generic 1909 Inventory entry (‘Distant buildings’): ‘Ponte di Rialto’.1 The Turner scholar C.F. Bell marked another copy in the same way.2 The main view possibly includes the imposing arcaded bridge on the Grand Canal, seen from the north-west, but the proportions of buildings appear wrong; compare for example a watercolour in the contemporary Grand Canal and Giudecca sketchbook (Tate D32119; Turner Bequest CCCXV 3). It may rather be a smaller structure with a balustrade.
The separate view of a building with a distant tower at the bottom left is continued across the gutter onto folio 55 recto opposite (D31398), where a small bridge is shown in the foreground.
