Description: 
Four customers can be seen on the far side of a curved linoleum-topped bar faced in a pattern of square and rectangular tiles. The room features tiled trim and walls, chromed edgings, a linoleum and tile floor and a streamlined cornice treatment. There is a cash register on the counter and a number of pictures hanging from the wall trim, possibly photographs of horse races. The Beach Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in March 1921. On completion of rebuilding in 1941 the hotel was a two storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and a tile roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
