Employed again in 1795 by the same publisher, Harrison & Co., Turner contributed to their Pocket Magazine, or Elegant Repository of Useful and Polite Literature, a handy volume of views and miscellaneous writings.

Working on a miniature scale, Turner honed his skill of packing a great deal of detail into a small space; the business of shipping on the Thames is organized to frame the Tower of London.
