Original photograph. " THE POET LAUREATE AS GARDENER."

"Mr. John Masefield, the Poet Laureate, is a keen gardener, and is here seen plucking some fine lupins in his garden at Boars Hill, Oxford." Thus reads the caption typed on tissue paper and attached to the back of this photograph supplied by Fox Photos and probably intended as human interest content for contemporary newspapers. The mustached and white haired Masefield is shown in wool jacket and cravat grasping one of a cluster of lupins.

Minor smudging to corners of photo.
