Roof Top Garden 1900


Rooftop theatre in 1900. Djuna Barnes writes “Come Into the Roof Garden Maude” describing the beautiful and lavish rooftop gardens as an escape to the business of urban life: “Everything on, in and about a roof garden, from the little white and green match-stands to the wide spanning arches of red light, is an appeal. Sometimes it is an appeal for silence; sometimes it is an appeal for laughter; often it is an appeal for help” (411).
