Hope Connors has fond memories from her childhood of spending bucolic summers at Brick House on the Shrewsbury in Red Bank, New Jersey with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Varick Stout. The lantern slides taken of the expansive gardens on this magnificent estate were donated to the Smithsonian in the 1940’s and have since been hand colored. The photos can be seen on the SAAG website today.
