Turner’s sketch TB CLXXXI 41a was taken from the left bank of the Tiber, for the campanile of the Palazzo del Senatore on the Capitoline Hill can only be seen from there. When I visited the view of the Capitoline was obscured by spring leaves. In Turner’s day there was no bridge. The present Ponte Sublicio was built in 1918.
