Description

TRANSCRIPTION

A Villa. Lago Maggiore. This beautiful lake is about 37 miles long and averages 2-3 miles in width. The banks of its northern arm are bounded by lofty mountains, for the most part wooded, while the eastern shore at the lower end slopes away to the level of the plains of Lombardy. The lovely gardens and shrubberies, orange trees, lemon trees, oleanders, etc., make a perfect setting for the beautiful lake.
