Description

Night view of Eaton hall gardens and the dragon fountain lit by the full moon. The scenery is described as follows by the author:

The south front of the hall looks upon the “Dragon Fountain Garden,” a retired and attractive spot, made doubly interesting by the introduction of statues of the most renowned of the Grosvenor family. […] The fountain — a dragon — occupies the centre of the garden, which, divided from the park by a wall, is of an oblong shape, prettily laid out, and planted with roses, geraniums, calceolarias, verbenas, etc., and will, in the course of a few years, when the numerous ornamental shrubs and trees have attained greater size, be a most beautiful and delightful retreat.
