This is a scan of an old postcard that shows the building well and the surrounding area too. It was probably taken during the first decade of the 20th century. You can see the recreation ground, where the children were racing in a previous picture, clearly on the north side (right) of the Lodge building. The building and padang (enclosure) on the right of the picture are, sadly, long gone.
