They appear to show the site and its new house prior to any landscaping installation, aside from a few trees. Some demarcation of walkways and what may have been garden outlines is in evidence. Charles F. R. Ogilby, Jr., was a prominent Washington, DC, attorney.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Charles F. R. Ogilby, Jr., and Elizabeth F. Hoehling Ogilby (former owners, circa 1911-1950) and Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect and photographer, 1911).
