Sweet Brier(sic), Fillmyre's Beer Garden, 1867

As it looked in 1866; Remodeled 1870.

This country scene shows a yellow mansion with green shutters and a wide porch partially obscured by trees in leaf. The surrounding grass is long. At least five long picnic tables are scattered about. There are some barrels visible and three chickens are pecking at the ground for food. Two women wear white aprons and are presumed to be servers. A glass hothouse (?) stands in front of the porch.

Spelling should be "Sweet Briar."
