Thanks for bringing this one back to life Mermaid Tears! My Mom was going through her travel purchases & found an old postcard of the [B]Sunken Garden[/B] from a reely long time ago, but its not dated. It IS an aerial though!!
Darn I sure wish i could scan this thing, drats. Anywho, the aerial shows the neatly trimmed hedges...like in Mermaid's pic, the slotted rail around the fountain & the FOUNTAIN is the one w/ the figure on top & plantings at the feet of the figure. I'm wondering if Mermaid's is up & out of the Sunken Garden on the E side stair area. My postcard cuts off just prior to a "landing" area there.
I do recall when we got married there that the Garden employees had all guests come through that entrance. It may be the fountain in question?
