The subject was drawn with the page turned horizontally. According to Turner scholar David Hill this, like folio 67 recto (D01054; Turner Bequest XXXV 52), is a view of Windermere from the shore at Waterhead, showing the same slate boats as in that drawing, but looking more directly north. Turner drew on both drawings for his view of Windermere for Walter Fawkes, executed in 1821 (Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal).1
