H. F. Baker Fence

[Harry F.] Baker saw the fence which we had designed for Hathaway [W. B. Hathaway summer residence, alterations] at Lake Minnetonka. He was a landscape architect, gardener, and nurseryman, and wanted something striking for his show place, so we developed a functional fence for him along the Hathaway lines.
