Description

This view, looking southwest in the Custis Tenement gardens, shows the plan following the outlines of the British Union Jack as designed by Arthur Shurcliff. Investigations and research were undertaken and, where no information was found, the garden plans detailed in Claude Joseph Sauthier's eighteenth-century town plans of North Carolina were often used as design precedents.
