With the page turned horizontally, the buildings on the horizon beyond the trees in this slight sketch are probably at Plymouth, seen from the west. The subjects as far as folio 127 recto (D09358) are all identified or presumed sites within a few miles, suggesting a series of fairly short excursions.
