It was taken before the construction of the new College buildings started in 1987 and before the round-about was constructed. The main entrance of the 1960 building has been re-built which was done about 1975. The College bought all the buildings from the single story cottage on the left to the right-most house including the laneway between the cottage and the other three houses.
