According to Jashemski, this was a large open area from which previous construction had been cleared. It was excavated in 1873-4.
Five doors in the south wall leading to the pomerium had been blocked up. Viola suggested that the garden was used for drying the leather in the sun. Tatiana Warscher believed the site was used as a kitchen garden.

I.5.2 Pompeii. 1936, taken by Tatiana Warscher. Looking north. Warscher described this photo as “The photo was taken from the south wall of the city. In the central zone, the spacious garden “m” can be seen. The spacious “m” is now filled with trees. Perhaps in the ancient city it was a garden where the plants that were necessary for the occupation were grown”. See Warscher T., 1936. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.1, I.5. Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains (no.34)

Fountain outside I.5.2. 1936 by Tatiana Warscher. Looking north-west across fountain in Vicolo del Citarista, towards Vicolo del Conciapelle and entrance at I.2.23. Warscher described this from Mau, Bull. Inst. 1875, p.25, as -
“Sul lato orientale del cantone NE dell’isola sta una fontana della solita forma.  Il foro per il tubo dell’acquedotto forma il centro d’un ornamento circolare”.
“On the east side of the insula, in the north-east corner, there was a fountain of the usual form. The hole for the tube for the water formed the centre of a circular ornament.

This extract from Tatiana Warscher’s “Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.1, I.5” (1936) appears at the end of all the properties in I.5 on this website.

 

Warscher quoting Mau in Bull. Inst.1875, p.25, described Vicolo del Conciapelle as via tertia, -

“L’insula 5 della Regione I è quasi tutta occupata dalla conceria. Fuori di essa non vi è che il compreso rozzo sul lato E ed una bottega con tre camere sul cantone NO”

 

(Translation: Insula 5 of Region I was nearly all occupied by a tannery. Outside of this, there was nothing other than a coarse complex on its east side, and a shop with three rooms in the north-west corner of the insula).

 

Quoting Sogliano in Giornale degli Scavi N.S. III, no.21, 1874, p.8, she wrote –

“Chiameremo 5 per l’ordine cronologico dei cavamenti quest’isola della I Regione, la quale per essere parallela e vicina alla I doverebbe piuttosto dirsi 2. 

Considerando la parte finora scoverta, osserviamo a prima vista che la sua costruzione offre in taluni punti grandi lastre del tufo di Sarno, in altri quello di Nocera, e per lo più l’opus incertum.

I tre vicoli, che rasentano ad oriente, settentrione ed occidente, non sono lastricati; il settentrionale è accessibile solo per i due altri margines, ricongiunti nel mezzo di esso da un piccolo ponte in fabbrica. 

Quest’isola, per la sua situazione presso la porta Stabiana e per la sua località, sembra sia stata abitata in gran parte da persone viventi col commercio e coll’industria”.

See Warscher T., 1936. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.1, I.5. Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.

 

(Translation: we will call insula 5 for the chronological order of the excavating of this insula of Region I, which being parallel and near to insula 1, should rather be called 2. Considering the part already excavated, we see at first glance that its construction offers in some places large slabs of Sarno tufa, Nocera tufa in other places, and mostly opus incertum. The three vicoli, that border to the East, North and West, are not paved; the North was accessible only by its two other sides, reuniting in the middle of it by a small masonry bridge. This insula, for its situation near the Stabian Gate and due to its location, seems to have been inhabited largely by persons living with commerce and industry.")
