Girls and a supervising nun at the Home of the Good Shepherd girls home, Ashfield, 1963

A black and white photograph of six girls sitting at small school desks using tabulating machines and typewriters. They are seated in two rows with some empty desks visible on the left.  The girls at the front of each row are working on tabulating machines and the remaining four are using typewriters. Some girls are wearing short-sleeved dresses and other short-sleeved blouses and skirts. A nun dressed in the traditional nun's black and white habit is standing between the two occupied rows of desks looking down at the work of one of the girls.
