A View of the New Magazine on the Camber at Portsmouth
Artist: Turner, John
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
Considerable improvements were carried out on Portsmouth's town defences in the first half of the 18th century. This view of the New Magazine is taken from the Point Gate at the harbour entrance and also features the Town Key and Town Wall. This drawing was copied by John Turner from a copy by William Brasier of an original drawing by C. Lempreriere of c.1716.
