Description

Beatrix Farrand and Ruth Havey contributed drawings for the design of the Fountain Terrace and Arbor Terrace.

Elements of the Arbor Terrace garden shown in the northwest view.

Two copies in collection both measuring 6.5 x 6.5 inches:

Copy A: On verso: Typewritten label: "Fountain Terrace terrace & steps - W. side." Stamped in black ink: "Photography by Ursula Pariser."

Copy B: On verso: Typewritten label: "Fountain Terrace terrace & steps - W. side." Handwritten in pencil: "92%" and "57" [circled]. Stamped in black ink: "Photography by Ursula Pariser."

Undated, probably taken between 1965, when Ursula immigrated to the United States and began working, and 1978, when her book, The Dumbarton Oaks Gardens : their history, design, and ornaments including a cropped color version of this photograph, was published.
