Henry Shaw's Victorian Landscapes: The Missouri Botanical Garden and Tower Grove Park
At the age of eighteen, Henry Shaw (1800–1889) left his home, the industrial town of Sheffield, England, to import manufactured goods from St. Louis via the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Two decades of financial success in St. Louis allowed him to relinquish his business operations and take up more genteel pursuits. In 1840 he began nearly ten years of travel, which exposed him to museums and botanical gardens in Europe, Asia Minor, and Russia. He also visited Chatsworth, in Derbyshire, England, where he saw Joseph Paxton’s arboretum and the duke of Devonshire’s world-class botanical collection. He vowed to create a similar cultural enterprise in St. Louis, his adopted home.
Over the next three decades, Shaw fulfilled his ambition, transforming his estate, Tower Grove, into one of the nation’s leading botanical gardens. Carol Grove chronicles Shaw’s remarkable story, from his early love of plants to his rising social conscience and his determined and successful quest to create a place of unsurpassed beauty and distinction that would educate and thereby improve American citizens.
At the outset, Shaw ordered thousands of plants, arranging the grounds with a gardenesque approach, using J. C. Loudon’s "three grand divisions" of garden, arboretum, and fruticetum. He ornamented his garden with observatories, a sunken parterre, and a "herbaceous ground" of plants scientifically arranged. He consulted with William Jackson Hooker, the director of the Royal Botanical Garden at Kew, and enlisted the Harvard botanist Asa Gray to guide him in establishing a research facility for scientists. St. Louis physician and botanist George Engelmann, the nation’s foremost authority on American cacti, was Shaw’s primary adviser.
Shaw’s Garden (now the Missouri Botanical Garden) opened in 1859 to legions of wildly enthusiastic visitors eager to see one of the first botanical institutions in the country. Over the next thirty years, Shaw expanded the plantings, drawing on the newly discovered species made available to him by the era’s great plant hunters. In 1867 he began intense work on Tower Grove Park, a stretch of 276 acres adjacent to the garden’s southern end. Despite the rising popularity of Frederick Law Olmsted’s pastoral style, Shaw again chose to design with a gardenesque method that emphasized plants as specimens, in keeping with his educational mission. He carefully labeled all trees and ornamented the landscape with exotic, Oriental-inspired pavilions and summerhouses.
Beautifully illustrated with contemporary and historical photographs, this volume offers an insightful cultural history of Shaw’s landscapes, among the most important examples of the gardenesque in America.

Hyde Park and our hotel from Sydney Tower
The last thing we did for my BD was to go up Sydney Tower. It was a super tourist trap. You pay $20 (aus) / person to go up the elevator and go on the OzTrek ride. When you get to the top, there are no signs telling you about anything. What are we looking at. When was the tower built? Why was it built? You can buy a tour book for $3, but you shouldn't have to after already spending money to get up there. Inside the observation deck, there are television screens and lighted signs. This is probably fine during the day, but at night, everything reflects off the windows, so if you want to see anything, you have to get close and cup your eyes. Lame! OzTrek is 3 holographic movies and 1 motion simulator ride about Australia. It was kinda clover, but very hoakey and dumbed down. But Bella and I made the best of it and had a good time making fun of it the rest of the trip.
Y on the Park.
Looking at our hotel from the Sydney Tower over Hyde Park. I stayed in the white building just above the monument in the park - between the square dark brown building to the left and the taller beige one on the left.

The author and his dog, "Herb," take you on a tour through the seasons of the year and a century of time in this unique Victorian strolling park. It is one of the country's greatest treasures. Recently it was designated a National Historic Landmark. St. Louis is one of three cities in the U.S. to have that historical distinction. Only three other parks in the United States have landmark status: Central Park in New York City; Boston Commons, and Boston Public Garden. The author brings the park alive through five seasons of the year, Early Spring, Late Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, melding his observations of life in the park with those on life itself. For Spring to be fully appreciated it must be seen in perspective with the other seasons of the year. In Walking In Tower Grove Park Robert Knittel takes you through them all, from peeping buds through trembling leaves, to colorful boughs, and finally crisp, dead foliage beneath your feet. To sample this delightful nature pilgrimage see the section titled EXCERPTS.
