Photograph of California Botanic Gardens, showing plat map being examined by Dr. Merrill, [s.d.]. At right, a man wearing a suit, tie, and glasses can be seen staring at a map to the left. The man holds a pen in his right hand and presses it against a section of the map. A small section to the left lists the total number of areas for a given unit. Near the bottom of the map, the words "Unit A" have been written, and the words "Unit C" are visible above where the pen is pointing. Small statements and lines fill the body of the image. In the bottom-left corner, a small compass key is given. Below the compass, the plat map reads: "L.A.M.P. Plat of the Garden Foundation, Inc. Proposed California Botanical Garden".
