A party in a bluestone courtyard at the back of a house. A clothesline and part of a car are visible. There are two blond children in the foreground. This photograph shows Emily Mierisch's first birthday party at 24 Westgarth St Fitzroy, 1978. The party is taking place in a side driveway, with bluestone paving. People are drinking, eating, taking photographs, and children are playing. The image shows renovations to a terrace house in the inner city, which were commonly bought and renovated during the 1970s. The photograph also shows a family celebration and an important event in a family's history: the first child's first birthday in a new family home with extended family and friends.
