This is an image of a nightingale, likely in Mountain Lake Sanctuary (now Bok Tower Gardens) in Lake Wales, Florida. Nightingales were kept in aviaries in the Sanctuary from about 1926 to the early 1930's. On the bottom in pencil: 'Nightingale of Mt. Lake - Merry Christmas. Mr. + Mrs. A.L. Alexander.' Alexander took many pictures in and around the Sanctuary and was a well-known Lake Wales photographer.
