Great landscaping, beautiful gardens frame distant mountains in this very European scene. No mountains like this in Peoria as far as we know! But they do have some beautiful gardens. Oh, and a grocery or two, as well.

Poplar Pond looks like a quiet, romantic hideaway. Unfortunately, we have no idea where it might be. Guess we each have to find our own! See comments below for the back of this card.

Complex framing, framing almost out of control, so it would seem, is softened here by the bleed over of the pond and complimented by a very strong sunset focal point. In the Arnold Galleries, Landscapes https://goo.gl/FZNXBm our exploration of framing continues.

This Victorian landscape was found among 19th century trade cards recently acquired for arnoldtradecards.com the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection - 1885. No identification was provided. The artist unfortunately is anonymous, as is the lithographer. The scene is typical of those found on many advertising trade cards of the time, complete with flowers (often out of season) and insets. These would appear to be beach roses.
