Condobolin Public School Memorial Gates

Description

The monument consists of two free stone pillars each 0.6 m wide and 0.3m deep, faced with marble tablets displaying lead lettered inscriptions. The gates, 3.0m wide are surmounted by a pediment featuring crossed rifles, laurel wreath, and rising sun. The gates are of ornamental ironwork by Larcombe & Co. of Lidcombe, to their own designs, and cost one hundred and fifty pounds. In 2003, the gates were moved back due to movement by encroaching tree roots. 'Excerpt on Condobolin participation in the World Wars' - W.
