Description

View of the Governor's Palace canal, 1935. The canal, in addition to the garden terraces to the left (also known as "falling gardens") and Ice House (out of view), are original eighteenth-century features of the Palace gardens. The structure to the left of the Canal is the Palace’s Toolhouse, and behind the Toolhouse, the cupola of the Governor’s Palace is visible. To the far right of the Canal, above the treeline, the steeple of Bruton Parish Church is observable in the distance.
