Mount reads: "Edward Van Altena, 71-79 W. 45th St., N.Y.C."
Historic plate number: "42."
Historic plate caption: "English."
The tree and topiary work resemble elements found at Canons Ashby in Woodford Halse, Gloucestershire, which was visited during the Garden Club of America's June 1929 tour to England. A complete copy of the GCA tour itinerary was printed in the Bulletin of the Garden Club of America (Fourth Series, No. 5), September 1929, pp. 6-25. However, its historic plate number, 42, places it out of sequence with Canons Ashby and other sites visited during that part of the tour.
