This photo was taken in the building we now refer to as the treasury building. All of the mahogany furniture is still there. The His Excellency the Governor Sir Peter Stallard addressing the opening of parliament on 19 March, 1965. Today the building today houses courts, including the Supreme Court, and the actual Treasury is housed on Coney Drive. The little building behind that building on the right is the law library, the Sir Albert Staine Building.
