Life in gardens: fall flower show

Fall flower show, via Library of Congress. . . at P.S. 15, Manhattan, New York City, ca. 1921, by Paul & Co., via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

This hand-colored glass lantern slide was used by Frances Benjamin Johnston in her garden lecture series.

The original black and white photo may have been taken for the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.  Its online photo collection has several 1921 pictures of P.S. 15 and P.S. 62 children working in their “nature rooms.”
