PGPT019 and 021
Date: 1890s
Source: photograph taken by John Gavin. PGPT003 shows an enlarged detail of this photograph.

It was taken from the Italian terrace looking North, from a point slightly lower than in PGPT002. The plantings are so similar in these 2 photographs that it is tempting to think they come from the same set, but there are differences, e.g. a ladder propped against the Palm house in PGPT002 does not appear here. Because the distance from the flower beds is less, it has been posssible to identify some of the plants ( ) e.g. the echeveria which edge the long bed on the left of the lawn.
