Longfellow Garden wall, Portland, ca. 1936

Contributed by Longfellow Garden Club


The wall separating the Longfellow Garden on Congress Street in Portland from adjoining tenement buildings on Brown Street is shown in a hand-painted lantern slide.

Gladys Pratt of the American Museum of Natural History in New York painted a number of lantern slides of the garden that the Longfellow Garden Club used when it gave presentations about the Wadsworth-Longfellow House and garden.
