It is part of the Soufrière estate which consists of 2,000 acres of land. The estate was presented by King Louis XIV in 1713 to three Devaux brothers from Normandy in recognition of their services to France. The postcard depicts the entrance of the gardens in the colonial period. Two male visitors to the gardens are in formal dress at the entrance. Outside the gate there are three women, one with a parcel on her head.
