Gardens, Inner Temple London

Looking toward the Thames, Inner Temple Gardens. Inns of Court, London. "Then how peculiar are the tidy legal gardens attached to the principal Inns, with their close-shaven grass-plots looking as sleek and bright as so much green plush, and the clean-swept gravel walks thronged with children, and nursemaids, and law-students" (Mayhew and Binney 72).
