Below the library were the rooms for Airy's assistants. In the foreground, the female figure shown with a child in the garden may be Richarda Airy. The garden is shown laid to lawn, with trees and trellised flowers.</p> <p>For a history of the Astronomers' Garden, otherwise known as 'The Lawn', see <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://www.royalobservatorygreenwich.org/articles.php?article=969'>http://www.royalobservatorygreenwich.org/articles.php?article=969</a> </p>
