Description

A photograph of the Oakburn building on the Elphin campus of Scotch Oakburn College in Launceston, Tasmania. The building was begun in 1861 by the landowner, Eliza Thompson. In 1886 it became part of the Methodist Ladies College, later Oakburn College, which was amalgamated with Scotch College for boys in 1979 to form Scotch Oakburn College. For many years the building has functioned as the boarding house. The Oakburn building, particularly its central tower, is in Romanesque style, featuring semi-circular arches and blind arches.
