Hello - I'm a China-based historian researching the life of sinologist Florence Ayscough. She was a friend of Maude Meagher who built Casa Tierra 15231 Quito Rd. In 1946 a memorial room was created in Casa Tierra containing Ayscough's Chinese collections. I'm trying to track down images of this room. Can anyone give me assistance?
Thank you!

Hi Lindsay,
I am a volunteer here and just happened upon your message. I suspect our regular reviewer is on vacation.
Luckily, I am the person most familiar with the photo archive that we have at Saratoga Historical Museum. I could not find any photos of the Chinese artifacts at Casa Tierra either in our database or in our files. We have a booklet which contains a few photos of the house under construction, but nothing of the interior.
I don't know what to suggest to find a picture. History San Jose has quite a large collection, so you might try there. Or perhaps a friend of the owners would have something.
Sorry for the slow response.
And Good Luck with your search.
