HUNDREDS queued up outside a hotel in Leederville [Perth] from 7am onwards yesterday to collect a Xmas ration of 6 bottles of beer. Cars and taxies added to the crowd as it waited for the handout.  Sale commenced at 10.30am, 400 dozen being sold.

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.
