1722 Bedford Road, Frank J. Bornhauser Home, Garden View, 1918

This backyard garden at 1722 Bedford Road was featured in an article on landscaping. Frank J. Bornhauser, a prominent Upper Arlington resident, was asked by Evan Mahaffey, his neighbor and the editor of the Norwester magazine, to write a "short treatise" on landscape gardening for the September 1918 issue. Frank complied with a two-page essay that he filled with tips on gardening and lawn care as well as this photograph of his beautifully landscaped home. He titled the piece Three Years of Joy and Blisters. The Bornhauser residence was the first house to be completed in the Thompson brothers’ Upper Arlington development.
