View of the triple archway and flagpole (known as Princes Gate) at the entrance leading from Hinemaru Street to Queens Drive, and to the gardens of the Government Sanatorium and Baths. There are wooden gates at the entranceway and a wire fence. There are noticeboards on top of the fenceposts and another close by. The Tudor Towers bathhouse (built 1906-1907) can be seen in the distance. A girl pushing a pram and a young child are in the gardens just inside the entranceway.
