Circa 1915-1920.  Kennedy Creevey setting a croquet stake; Eileen Creevey and William Webster Ellsworth (Eileen’s grandfather) watching.  On the North Lawn, I think it is about where the ‘little’ Cucumber Magnolia now stands.  The flower garden in back is still, or again, a garden.  The gravel path, however, is long vanished.  Playing croquet on that lawn takes a bit of skill these days, tree roots and nearly a century have turned it into anything but a flat surface.

(I haven’t a clue as to what the white rectangle in the back left is)
