Thomas W. Sears may have been engaged as the landscape architect for this property, located at 249 Blackstone Boulevard. The 16 photographs in the album show the house under construction around 1914-1915, and the general plan (RI047001) is dated December 4, 1914. It is not clear, however, whether a detailed design or installation ever took place. George Briggs, Jr., was a prominent Providence businessman. The property is now the Dr. John E. Donley Rehabilitation Center.
Persons associated with the garden include George Briggs, Jr. (former owner, circa 1914-1927) and Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect and photographer, circa 1914-1915).
