Item Information

Title: Red Rose Inn, Villanova, Pennsylvania

Date: 190-?

Physical Details: 1 photographic print : sepia ; 15 x 21 cm.

Description: Photograph is thought to depict the Red Rose Inn where Violet Oakley and several of her fellow artists lived in the early 20th century.

There is some confusion as to whether it actually depicts Cogslea, her later studio and residence, but this house does not quite match photos of Cogslea with its multiple gables.
