Description

This scale model of a potential design for the Horseshoe Steps was never built. It was probably created after Beatrix Farrand began redesigning the pool area in 1926 and before the Horseshoe design was chosen in 1931.

Photograph undated, probably taken 1926-1931 based on sketches of the steps.
