Visit to the Oxford Terrace Plunket Rooms


Visit to the Oxford Terrace Plunket Rooms


These four siblings are outside the Plunket Rooms on Oxford Terrace (next to the present Oxford Hotel). The twin boys have been to visit the plunket nurse and sit in a double brougham navy blue pram. The school girl is dressed in the brown uniform of St Joseph's Cathedral and the Preschool girl is dressed in pink. All well wrapped up so I suspect it's autumn or spring.
