Description

Exterior view of the Smokehouse, Laundry, Salthouse, and Bagnio outbuildings flanking the Governor's Palace to the west, 1933. In the foreground is the Palace Smokehouse (depicted by a whitewashed wooden structure with a shingled roof), where meat was smoked for preservation purposes. Barely visible behind the Smokehouse is the Salthouse (also depicted as a whitewashed wooden structure with a shingled roof). The brick building visible to the left of the Smokehouse is the Palace Laundry, where the Palace's linens were washed. The small, tent-roofed, brick hexagonal structure beyond the Laundry is the Bagnio (bathhouse), once used by the Governor for bathing purposes. In the background, the Palace's facade, roof, and cupola are visible above the roofline of the outbuildings.
