Blythswood was a former mansion in Kew, built in the 1850s and later becoming the home of the newspaper magnate, David Syme. The file contains detailed histories and a large number of annotated photocopied photographs of the house and garden. Most of the items were compiled and donated by Veronica Coudou, a descendant of the Syme family. The main 10-page [copyrighted] manuscript by Coudou covers the period 1863-1908 and describes the buildings, gardens and the owners. These items are undated. Also in the file is a 15-page printout of a website on the mansion, accessed 2013.
