A Study Of . . . G.W.'s Mount Vernon / West View Of House; #2

#2: bird's-eye view showing west side

Rest of caption reads:  In the foreground is the entrance to the serpentine drive, which winds its sinuous way to the door of the mansion. On each side of the great house, the smaller dependent structures are grouped, while at the upper right is the summer house, and beyond that, the river. The formal gardens and buildings that were formerly servants' quarters are at the left. Like a black pencil line, at the upper left, runs the low boundary to the garden, known as the ha-ha wall.  (From The National Geographic Magazine, May 1928)
