One of three black-and-white slides showing close-ups of a section of Walter Burley Griffin's Preliminary Plan.

This slide focuses on the West Lake and West Basin with only half of the Central Basin visible.

You can see a marking for the Governor-General’s Residence, adjacent to State Circle on Capitol Hill, which is some distance from the place where it ended up being built, on the foreshore of the Molonglo River.

The images on these three slides are surrounded by cream-paper borders, in either a circular or oval shape. The cream-paper border is not used on any of the other slides in this series, which may indicate that they were originally used in another presentation.
