Architectural watercolour and ink drawing of plan for Perth Hospital Nurses' Quarters turret. The design is in soft yellow, brown, blue and pink. The coloured plan shows details of the turret including cross-section, elevation and longitudinal section. There is a triangular piece missing at the bottom left hand corner, probably due to being folded for a long period of time. It is signed by Chief Architect Hillson Breasley in the bottom right hand side with a 'Public Works Department' stamp below.
