Hec calls the tune

hecIn this age of TV and large scale entertainment, there’s one hotel in Ballarat (Victoria) which has solved the problem of entertaining customers with a one-man show.

It’s the Athletic Club Hotel, where barman Hec Stephens (pictured) plays a toy violin. Hec’s efforts, trying to get a tune out of the small plastic violin, keep the customers continually amused.

A drinker gave the violin to Hec when he broke the strings of his real one.

-Argus (Melbourne, Vic.), Tuesday 28 August 1956.
