The Pont de la Tournelle is in the middle distance, and towards the right is the apse of the cathedral of Notre-Dame. The tower in front of the Pont de la Tournelle is the remains of the Pont de Constantine, before the Pont Sully was built in its place.

Lépine painted this view many times and at different stages in his career. This picture has been dated to 1862-4.
