In 1879, the PWC became coeducational, and the Normal School (a separate institution founded in 1856) became part of PWC. This proud group of graduates are pictured in front of the 1900 stone Prince of Wales College building and includes Florence Newbery (daughter of Queen Square designer, Arthur Newbery), who grew up in 10-12 Haviland Street. A wonderful collection of images of her family and areas around the City was donated to the City by her daughter, Dorothy Forsythe. It provides a rare glimpse of informal family life in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This image poses a bit of a mystery as only one of the group was identified. The rest of the graduates names are unknown so if anyone can help us, we would be delighted to know who the other individuals are in the photo.
