Summary: The photograph shows a group of adults and children sitting in a grassed area with the recognisable limestone walls of the old hotel behind them, as well as a newer weatherboard building in the background. The wall is most likely an old wing that ran north-south behind the current hotel buildings, and the weatherboard structure was set slightly to the south of the main house. From Anglican archives: "'Barbeque area at Coogee - note new wing - bathroom and laundry... in 1948 a new ablution block and laundry had been built, giving an approximate date for this image."
