Rimmer was an artist and architectural historian - he published many books examining historic buildings, illustrating them himself. He published 'Pleasant Spots Around Oxford' in 1878, for which this is a prepatory sketch. The published engravings were done by Percy Roberts after Rimmer's sketches. Sutton Courtenay is a village in Oxfordshire, previously in Berkshire. Sutton Pools form a backwater of the River Thames, made by a number of weirs, islands, footbridges and barriers. There was a paper mill on the upper stretch until 1897.
