An aerial of 'Spring Hill', originally the William L. Stow estate designed by John Russell Pope c. 1903 in Old Westbury and for many years owned by Henry Carnegie Phipps. The photo shows the house sometime in the teens or twenties as by 1932 the reflecting pools had been replaced by a swimming pool. Click HERE for more on 'Spring Hill' and HERE to see a 1932 aerial. Photo from the Olmsted Archives.
