This is a color snapshot of the pagoda in the Japanese Garden at Bellarmine Hall from 1968. The garden was designed in 1926 by Arthur A. Shurtleff for the Walter B. Lashar family. Hanging from the pagoda are bells of ascending tones. Only the concrete foundation remains of this structure.
On the back of the photograph is written: "To Tony, from the old photographer -R." Our guess is that Tony refers to Rev. Anthony J. Eiardi, S.J., a math professor here at Fairfield University who restored the garden in 1956 and was also an authority on the history of Bellarmine Hall. Image date is approximate.
Photographic print; color; 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 in.
