What is it?


Unfortunately there are no records that tell us more about this structure. All the photograph had written on the back was the word 'Sunlounge'.

Look closely at the photograph and use your imagination to answer the questions below:

What do you think this structure was used for?
Where do you think would have been a good location in the park to build this structure? Why?
