LIKE OLD TIMES – At about midday on Thursday, a young man drove up to the front of the Royal Hotel, in Molesworth Street, Lismore, got out of the sulky, took the horse out and tied him up to the post, and politely left them unattended there and went about his shopping. He returned about an hour later, put the horse in the sulky, and drove off, taking little heed of the interested and amused spectators.
– Northern Star (Lismore, NSW) Monday 7 September 1931.
The Royal Hotel served its last beers on April 11 1964 when it closed for business, and was later renovated for retail outlets. Its license “went into the pool”.
