Ravine history
During the restoration project, much of the history of the ravine building and its planting has been assembled by Botanic Gardens staff from old newspapers, the Public Records office, plant accession records from Kew Gardens and other sources. We hope to bring you some of this archive in the future. Meanwhile here is one image of the building in its early form. Note the lantern roof which has been re-instated in the modern restoration.
