Africana: Pietermaritzburg Botanical Gardens 1920's pictures

On the 3rd of March, 1874, the Pietermaritzburg Botanical Garden was founded. The Original Objectives of the Garden were growing plants, primarily trees, for distribution in the colony of Natal, collecting indigenous plants for exchange and accumulation of plants of beauty, value and rarity. Amongst the most famous visitors was President Kruger, who planted a Camellia japonica in April 1891. From 1892 onwards the Garden provided flowers for exhibition at local flower shows. Azaleas were very popular and grew well in the Garden.

"The great improvements that have taken place in the last 2 years are rapidly raising the Garden to a position second to none in South Africa, and it is a matter of amazement that so much could have been accomplished in so short a time... a veritable lung of the city, soothing to the eye and brain, and appealing to the sense of all that is beautiful and good and noble." - A quote from the Natalian, 11 October 1907.
