Cross Manor, near St. Mary’s City, Maryland, 1936 or 37, by Frances Benjamin Johnston, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
Some big boxwood love. The house (with 110 acres) still exists and may be the oldest in Maryland. Click here to see photos from 2013, when Ted Koppel lived there.
“Cairo’s public gardens on Gezireh,” between 1950 and 1977, hand-colored slide by Matson Photo Service, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

The flower gardens of Lake Monhonk Mountain House, Ulster County, New York, ca. 1902, a postcard by Detroit Publishing Co., via The New York Public Library Digital Collections.
Lake Mohonk Mountain House is a resort founded in 1879 by Albert Smiley, a “passionate gardener,” and a Quaker deeply concerned with the cause of world peace. (From 1895 to 1916, he convened annual conferences on international arbitration at the hotel.) The main building, shown on the postcard above, has 259 guest rooms and is now a National Historic Landmark.
