circa 1908-1913
Notes:
The Hawthorne Inn and cottages were originally built in 1891 in the East Gloucester section of Gloucester, Massachusetts (East Gloucester is given as the location on the renderings). Significantly damaged by an arson fire in 1938, the establishment closed after World War II. Sears's drawings, done while he was practicing in Providence, Rhode Island, show a parklike setting with multiple homes or cottages (the Hawthorne Inn included both a central hotel and cottages) and may have been intended to improve the overall landscape design and attractiveness of the property. It is not known whether Sears's design was ever implemented.
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of labels from the box in which Sears stored the negatives, and other information.
