Date created: August 1941
Description: 
View of curved tile-faced linoleum-topped bar bordered with mottled tiles. The room has a linoleum and tile floor, partially tiled walls, a decorative plaster cornice and lights hanging from the ceiling. To the left of the entrance is a KB Lager blackboard with notices and advertisements attached. On the wall above the board is an octagonal clock and on the counter is an ornate cash register. The Unicorn Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in February 1936. On completion of rebuilding in August 1941 the hotel was a two storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and a roof that was partly malthoid covered and partly surfaced with corrugated asbestos. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
