Ice put in hotel guests’ baths
THE water was so hot at Walgett (NSW) yesterday during the fierce State-wide heat that at the Imperial Hotel ice had to be put in the baths for guests. Temperatures ranged from 106.3 (41.2C.) at Sydney to 116.2 (46.7) in the country.

Very interesting. I’m from Walgett and enjoy reading these old stories.
I’m from Walgett. I never heard that story. From what I remember of the Imperial. They didn’t have baths, only showers.
This story is from more than 80 years ago, TeAnne….
