Description

I love anything to do with the past. Imagining who lived in old houses and what they may have looked like many years past gives me much to ponder. Were they rambled old shacks like they look now or did they have days of grandeur? At Inverell Pioneer Village, one of the highlights of the village is Paddy’s Pub built in 1874 and previously located at Stanborough. In the Pub’s prime many a traveller would pass through it's doors on their journey, which provided accommodation and refreshments for all that passed. The building is a 1870s authentic Cobb & Co wayside Pub, fitments and living quarters. This is a side and back view of the pub. My paint job is a little kinder than the very old and weathered current condition that has developed over a 100 years, though I tried to maintain the feeling of the building, both past and present.
