Camperdown, University of Sydney, Baxter's Lodge

  1. Walked passed this gatehouse many a time when I was a student at this university. And the gatehouse still looks beautifully preserved.

  2. I love this gatehouse because it looks as if the designers were trying to integrate with the rest of the 19th century university buildings. My spouse's beloved alma mater :)

  8. Interesting stonework, and the roof edges and tiny windows. It looks very English.
