1953
Financial troubles mount for the Garden.


Entering the Victory Garden Harvest Show, Oct. 2-4, 1942. Palm House and Lily pool. Mounted with PHO 2007-1501. Negative available at PHO 2007-1502.

The Garden which had been financially strapped since the 1930s runs a deficit for the first time. Unfortunately the Garden is forced to forgo many necessary repairs and put any further developments on hold.
