United Kingdom, England, Kent, Sevenoaks
Knole House (Sevenoaks, Kent, England)
[between 1925 and 1935]
Mount reads: "Edward Van Altena, 71-79 W. 45th St., N.Y.C."
Historic plate number: "134."
Historic plate caption: "English."
Knole House was visited by the Garden Club of America during its 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. The historic plate number for this image, 134, follows directly after that of an image of Knole House, 133, and immediately precedes 135, an image of Ightham Mote, the property visited on the tour immediately after Knole. The pedestal urn visible in the distance in the image bears a strong resemblance to others seen in contemporary (2017) Internet images of Knole.
