This photo from Paul Barratt took me back. It was taken by his father in the 1950s. Further brief comments follow the photo.
The photo is taken on Booloominbah's northern forecourt. The caption - “When the wisteria starts to bloom it is time to make your run; when the roses bloom it is too late” - captures the old exam message. The students with their books and gowns, the colour, captures a world now past.
