Description

Beatrix Farrand created drawings for the arbor (GD P-3-01), bookcase (GD P-3-24A), and panels (GD P-3-25B) under the arbor.

As the arbor and panels appeared between 1935 and 1945 based on presence of bookcase panel, plantings in the central Herb Garden bed, and dates of correspondence discussing when Stewart Bros. photographed the gardens.

Photograph undated, taken approximately between 1935 and 1945.

Probably photographed by Stewart Bros. Photographers, due to similarity of arbor and plantings to GP 4-4.

On verso: typewritten label: Arbor Terrace, Wisteria Arbor. Also handwritten: #195, Wisteria Arbor and dripping fountain, E Terrace.

Title created by cataloger.
