Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued to the right on folio 123 (D06331). As Hill notes, the building might be part of Windsor Castle and the same, although seen from a different angle, to that in folios 123 verso–124 (D06332–D06333). If working backwards through the sketchbook, these spreads conclude a series of Windsor views begun on folio 135 verso (D06356).
