Description

Drawing unsigned, probably created by Beatrix Farrand as title appears to be written in Beatrix Farrand's hand.

Possibly one of three design considerations for the south wall with a gate which was constructed between 1934 and 1936. The first design for the south end included a hedge and not a wall. Drawing GD O-1-01 includes hedges and was sent to Farrand in 1934, and drawing GD O-3-26, shows a design for the south end quatrefoil gate dated 1935-1936.

Title also appears to be written in Beatrix Farrand's hand.

Written on left side: "higher pier at end of E wall" ; smaller sketch showing "old wall" ; "new pier" ; and "new wall."

Title created by cataloger.
