An old sailor with a long pigtail, and wearing an old-fashioned blue coat with gold lace, points with a pointer at a large decoration by Thornhill. He leans against an iron railing, standing on raised stone flags. A corner of the decoration is shown, swirling allegorical figures, nude and partly draped. On the right is the lower left. corner of a large heavily framed picture: a man in Roman draperies, and a woman in longer draperies. Two sightseers and a small boy gaze at the wall, the man yawning cavernously. The guide says: "Here is Prince George of Denmark, and in & the Prospective a View of St Pauls London, Sr James Thornhill in the Wig &&&'".
