The New York City Garden Photographs of Frances Benjamin Johnston
As pointed out in Thursday’s New York Times, a rare cache of photographs documenting America’s gardening past have been digitized and are now online at the website of the Library of Congress.
Taken by Frances Benjamin Johnston in the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries to accompany magazine articles, these beautiful images serve as a portal to gardening and landscaping trends of the past. The images of the gardens of New York City are especially wonderful. Take an hour this morning while you sip your coffee or tea to leisurely scroll through this wonderful new resource. ~AR
