Public House Lamps

pub lamp

IT is not generally known that, according to the Liquor Act, it is necessary that every public house must have a lamp outside the main entrance to the hotel, and it is necessary that the lamp be lighted at sundown, and be kept burning till closing time.

At Newtown Police Court on Friday James Edison Ikin, licensee of Terminus Hotel, St Peters, was summoned for neglecting to have a light in the lamp outside his hotel.

A fine of 10s and costs, in default three days imprisonment, was imposed.

– Glen Innes Examiner (NSW) April 19 1904


If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
