Photograph of Sir John Temple-Leader's Villa in Cannes. The property comprises two storeys with a terrace at the top of the villa (see RCIN 2932793 for a view taken from the top of this terrace). The property is built on a slope with trees in the foreground. Leader built the Villa Leader following his decision to move to Cannes in the mid 1840's. Boulevard Leader in the city was named after him and his influence there helped to make the resort a favourite amongst the English aristocracy.
