William Hemphill describes this photograph, "Newtown Anner is situated about two and a-half miles from Clonmel, the mail coach road to Waterford passing through the demesne, which extends to the River Suir on the south, and is bounded on the west by a small river, the Anner, from which it derives its name.

On a raised mound planted with evergreens, stands a little summer-house, in the form of an ancient Greek temple, with Doric portico, extremely elegant in design. The gardens, terraces, and temple are all monuments of Lady Osborne's skill and taste."
