Content Description
(14) glass stereographs documenting seven Philadelphia-area gardens visited during a tour sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, circa 1935-1950.


The stereographs were housed in a small box with slips of paper around batches of the stereographs labelled with a garden name or owner. The stereographs were identified with a particular garden based on this arrangement, though it is possible that not all of the identifications are accurate.
