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.
