Subseries 1. Photographs, 1950-2009

Scope and Content Notes:

The photographs in this subseries record club events from 1950-2006. A large number of photographs are undated and unlabeled, and large gaps exist between years. The photographs that were identified include the club's anniversaries and meetings, their gardening programs (flower shows, May Market, Dirt Diggers) and outreach programs (garden therapy, sneaker recycling, Trillium Trail walks). The largest number of photographs identified are from the "Pittsburgh on the Move" flower show at Harmarville Rehabilitation hospital on July 28, 1999. The series also contains photographs from the club's first garden therapy outreach program at the Veteran's Affairs hospital on Delafield Road from 1955-1960 (See Box 5, Folder 10 for the corresponding notebook entries these photographs were separated from). Where it was possible to identify photographs, they are grouped alphabetically by activity or event, and then sorted in chronological order.
