THE GREAT WESTERN HOTEL, HUGHENDEN
As the western terminus of the Northern Railway, Hughenden commands the business of a territory twice as large as Great Britain, and on that account is essentially a town of big stores and hotels. The most recently erected, most imposing, and most comfortable is, undoubtedly, ‘The Great Western’, of which a sketch is given above. It is the most commodious hotel west of Charters Towers, and must do a great business. It has recently been taken over by Mr A. D. D. Moir, so well-known and liked as managing clerk for Messrs. Brodziak and Rodgers, Townsville, who will, no doubt, be a pronounced success in his new vocation.
