Japanese Garden Scenic View

Japanese Garden Scenic View

This scenic view of an unknown Japanese garden shows a stone lantern at center as well as a turtle sunning itself on the pond’s rock at lower part of frame.  Although Unknown Brooklyn photographer took early water views of the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden at Brooklyn Botanic Garden seen on this site, the vantage point in this photograph is not comparable to early views there, with this cyanotype most likely printed before this garden opened in 1915.

This photograph, with title supplied by this archive, is by an Unknown Brooklyn amateur photographer whose surviving work was discovered in a trunk in the American South and acquired by PhotoSeed. Background can be found at link on Associated Blog Posts within this page.
