|WALLS OF FRENCH TREILLAGE|
The estate of Mr. and Mrs. C. F. McCann at Oyster Bay contains several gardens, all of them laid out in the French manner. Treillage forms the background for one part, another is a walled entrance court with its pool and terminal statue and still a third is a formal garden reached by the wide steps pictured here. It was designed by Annette Hoyt Flanders to whom was awarded the gold medal of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Drawings by Joseph B. Platt.
