Rasnick noted since they met at the library, books were just steps away to show that lat- tice type fences covered with vegetation is not only histori- cally accurate but is in an area of historic preservation that needs to be promoted. He noted during the Victorian generation, a great amount of stress existed in life and they wished to Seek peace and tranquility in "garden set- tings."
