Description

Hand-colored lantern slide featuring photo of Coke-Garrett House garden gate taken by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. It is the twenty-third slide in a set produced by the Pacific Stereopticon Co. of Los Angeles, California, now defunct, to illustrate the story of Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin's dream to restore a portion of Williamsburg, Virginia to its 18th-century appearance as a shrine to early American ideals.

This view looks from the garden across a gate towards the front elevation of the house. The western portion served as the 18th-century residence of silversmith John Coke, while the central Greek Revival style portion was constructed in the early 19th- century by the Garrett family.
