This gathering is probably at the laying of the foundation stone for the War Memorial Cenotaph, circa late 1919 or early 1920.
Behind the assembled crowd are the tightly constructed picket fence tree-guards, protecting the memorial trees planted earlier in mid-July 1919. This image is on display at Waratah’s Historic Bishcoff Hotel.
