The Mansion, Baguio City Postcard

The postcard shows not only The Mansion and its gate but also the "Pool of Pines" or better known as Wright Park. The park features a 100-meter shallow, elongated, rectangular man-made pool of water lined on both sides by pine trees.

Wright Park was named after the architect, Governor Luke E. Wright (who ordered architect Daniel Burnham to build Baguio as a recreational facility for American soldiers and civilians).
