The foundation stone at the right, with churchmen and choir in centre. The Duke and Duchess have just arrived, and onlookers raise their hats as they pass by.
205 x 145 mm. The ceremony in progress. The Duke bends over the stone and applies mortar, while the Duchess stands to his right with umbrella. The Bishop of Brisbane stands next to the Duke. (Bishop William Thomas Thornhill Webber, 1837 - 1903).
205 x 140 mm. A hymn is sung while the stones are joined.
