The mystery photo was taken inside the old school house, now sited at the edge of Orton Bradley Farm Park and adjacent to the golf course. I think it's usually locked, but earlier this year, when we were planting natives in the park, it was available for us to make hot drinks and eat our cut lunches. The framed view out the window caught my attention because I imagined the children, on a hot summer day, gazing longingly upwards and glimpsing only the sky and maybe the tops of the harbour hills!
I know that the school was moved to its present site - maybe in the 1980s? Right now I can't recall its previous location - so a challenge to myself to find out. It is a lovely wooden building - simple and spacious. The image accompanying this post shows photos above the fireplace - the lower photo presumably of the school in its original location.
