Duke and Duchess of York at Parliament, 1901


The remodelled grounds hosted many grand public events. The Duke and Duchess of York on their royal tour in 1901 arrive at the main entrance of Parliament to be welcomed by Premier Seddon and crowds of onlookers.

The combination of sweeping lawns, graceful steps and the buildings themselves have made Parliament Buildings the venue for important public and private celebrations.
