Edgewood (Baltimore, Maryland)
Date:
1906
1908
[between 1906 and 1908]
Notes:
The same pergola appears in ENG045022, ENG045027, and ENG097010. Images ENG097010 and MD056073 show the brick columns as unpainted, while ENG045022 and ENG045027 show painted columns, suggesting that Sears visited the site initially in 1906 and again in 1908, following the painting. Although one of the images, ENG097010, would place the location of the pergola at Gravetye Manor, home of William Robinson, no evidence has yet been found for this style of pergola at that site. Likewise, despite lantern slide MD056073 (produced from source image ENG097010) being physically associated with other images of Edgewood, MD056, it does not appear to be of that garden. More likely, Sears used it as a reference or source for the pergola that he did design for Edgewood.
The lantern slide was made by Frank L. Collyer, 22 1/2 Crescent St., Cambridge, Massachusetts.
