Photograph of Bolton Priory Gardens Published in 1902

In 1902, Alice Morse Earle published a book entitled "Sundials and Roses of Yesterday". In it she included a photograph of the gardens of Bolton Priory. At the time, Frederick Allen owned the Priory.

The photograph shows a sundial that formerly stood at The Mount in Astoria. It appears immediately below, followed by a citation to its source.
