Physical description

35mm colour transparency of the front portico of Burke Hall (formerly Studley Hall, Waverley) and now Xavier Junior School in Nolan Avenue, Kew. Since its construction in the 19th century, the building has had numerous additions made by subsequent owners. The original render has been painted and sections of the original colonnades glazed in. The facade of Burke Hall faces away from Studley Park Road to take advantage of the views to the south.
