|Date created:||August 1941|
View of a curved linoleum-topped bar faced with veneer. The room features partially veneered walls, a linoleum floor laid in a grid pattern and a light hanging from the ceiling. There is also a cash register and a stack of matchboxes on the counter, a trophy on a shelf and a wall clock.The Exchange Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in March 1921 and was probably sold in 1983 (the Company record is partly illegible). On completion of rebuilding in August 1941 the hotel was a two storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior wall and an iron roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
