The location for this sketch of buildings beside the Neapolitan waterfront is not conclusively identified although it probably represents the stretch of coastline at the foot of the Pizzofalcone Hill (also known as Monte Echia) looking towards Santa Lucia. The area was transformed during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by the raising of the Via Santa Lucia to offset rising sea levels and the building of the new waterfront, the Via Partenope. Some of the details in the top left-hand corner belong to the composition on the opposite sheet of the double-page spread, see folio 13 verso (D15933).
