Inscope Arch

inscope arch


Connecting the Zoo with the Pond, Inscope is a striking example of Ruskinian Gothic architecture perfected by Park architect Jacob Wrey Mould. Inscope was one of three structures built during the 1870s in response to the overflow of pedestrians competing with horseback riders and carriage drivers. (The others were Gapstow Bridge and Outset Arch, which no longer exists). The elegant arch is constructed of pink and gray granite.
