View of Queen's Gardens, East Perth, opened in 1899, on the site of a former claypit. The area has been planted with lawns and deciduous trees such as weeping willows. The park is equipped with paths, benches, a rustic bridge and a lifebuoy. On the water, black swans and white birds are watched by a boy wearing knickerbockers. Visible in the distance are various buildings including a very long structure that is possibly an exhibition hall, and an ornate building with a mansard roof.
