 'Mallow', the Walter Farwell estate designed by William Welles Bosworth c. 1918 in Oyster Bay Cove.  Click HERE and HERE for more on 'Mallow' which is now the East Woods School.  Click HERE to see the residence on bing.

Photos from American Architect, 1922.

To me today's photos look more recent than the ones posted on 11.29.10 because of the stage of the outside ivy. I mention this because S. O'Brien - Canada commented the furniture in the library was never moved because Mr. Farwell had gone blind. The library furniture has been moved between the two library photos, although the sofa appears to have the same floral upholstery.

There is my meaningless observation for the day.

Could these photos date from after the property was purchased by East Woods? There was a reflecting pool in the back (North Side) that is absent here that I believe the founders of East Woods filled in.
