Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory


The cold days of January have me thinking about the summer and how much I miss the lush green landscape. So as I was sifting through some photos from the DVD archive, I came across this one of the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory on Bell Isle. I took the photo while I was taking photos for the Peace Carillon video. Albert Kahn designed the the Scripps Conservatory, and it was constructed in 1904. While the photo may not be the best of the greenhouse, I like the way it's framed by the trees full of green leaves, so it arrives here in January to try and warm up the place a bit.
