47 The Greek Pergola
The most striking feature of the great garden, a block in length, just across Harvard Street from the Administration Building, is the Grecian Pergola shown in this illustration. it is a very large structure, much larger than the picture would lead you to believe. Its great columns are made entirely of cement, and the roof on either end is built of red tile. Our gardens have been planted but a little more than a year, so that the shrubbery, trees and vines are young and have not as yet made the showing they will within the next two or three years. Various varieties of climbing vines have been planted around this open structure, and soon these vines with great clusters of bloom will cover ‘the columns and roof, and it will be a veritable bower of beauty. Its classic outlines add the finishing touch to our beautiful gardens, than wh~ch there is nothing more attractive in the City of Chicago.
