[General description] Students are gathered outside the stone walls of the college, many sporting straw boater hats. The younger boys are in knickerbockers. In the foreground one older group, possibly masters, is standing in the middle of the road on the horse tram tracks. The older building of the Whinham College is prominent in this view and the rear of the grand new one, built in 1882 by Robert Whinham, is seen on the left. See B 10698 for its front view. (The college was founded in 1854 by John Whinham as the North Adelaide Grammar School and was later taken over by his son, Robert. Due to Robert's untimely death from a riding accident this highly regarded college gradually declined in prestige and closed in 1898.)
