Description
A view of the house now on the west ridge of the Japanese garden, in its previous location. A couple are standing on a bridge on the left, while a woman in traditional Japanese attire is standing on the right with a child in her arms. The woman on the right is Tsune Goto, and the child is probably her eldest son Kametaro, also known as Kame or "Tom". Henry E. Huntington bought the house, stone statuary, and plants from George Turner Marsh in 1911, and had it moved to his estate from Marsh's commercial Japanese garden in Pasadena. On verso: Mr. Goto's old views.
