St Wilfred's Convent and Home was opened in the 1978. The convent belongs to the Daughters of the Cross of Liege. The sisters have dedicated themselves to the service of others, in particular the young and the old. Before moving to Tite Street they were based in the Cale Street. Residents and visitors comment on the beautiful garden described as an ‘urban oasis'. Unfortunately it is hidden behind the high wall in the middle of the photograph.
They provide residential accommodation for 44 elderly men and women, many with physical disabilities.
In the far distance studio houses Tite Street can be seen. Look out for them on the next image. These were built in the late 19th century when Tite Street was built as an access road to the new embankment.
