Terms & Conditions
This print is a digital conversion
of a Tulip that I photographed in Crescent Garden in Gosport
(Hampshire) earlier this year. There are numerous software
suites for photographic editing but I preferred the Cubism
effect provided by Gimp.
Garden was part of the design by 21 year old architect Thomas
Ellis Owen (1804-1862) for “Anglesey ville” in 1826. He was
commissioned by Robert Cruickshank, a notable Gosport
entrepreneur (1785-1853) who wanted to create a fashionable
new watering place like Brighton.
It was an
ambitious project; successful at first, but not enough for all
the buildings in his plan to be achieved. This Ornamental
Garden was laid out for a line double Crescent but only the
first half was built. Its raised Terrace Walk commanded view’s
of the Isle of Wight and kept out the cattle that grazed
between the Garden and the sea, At its centre was a small
Neoclassical building: a curved Reading Room with Bath Houses
on each side, where warm and cold sea water baths could be
taken, often medically prescribed in those days.
garden is managed by the "Friends
of Crescent Garden"
