Union Inn–Royal Exchange Hotel

George St, with Brisbane St corner, 2016.

In 1840, the Union Inn was on the NE corner of the George and Brisbane Streets intersection. Prior to this, the site was occupied by the Rose & Thistle, Horse & Groom and Verandah Wine Vaults, so the Union must have been elsewhere along George Street at this time. (Was it the house on the corner of Paterson and George Streets?) By the 1870s, it has moved to the western side of George Street. (Not to be confused with the Union Club Hotel, which was the name of the hotel on the corner of George and York Street in the mid-20th Century.)

Launceston Advertiser, 15 May 1834
Launceston Advertiser, 15 May 1834

In 1860 this appears, which might or might not be the same place:

The Rising Sun.
Mr John Bedford applied for a license to a house in George-street above Dr. Maddox’s buildings, which had been formerly licensed by the name of the “Rising Sun.” The Superintendent of police said the premises had been occupied for some time by the lowest class in the community, and were not in a fit state for occupation as licensed premises. In reply to Mr Bartley, he said he believed that a license to the premises would be an evil in the neighbourhood, and there was no necessity for the license, as there were five other licensed houses in that immediate vicinity. Mr Knight, the landlord of the premises, addressed the Bench, and said the house had formerly been kept respectably until the person who kept it look out a brewer’s license and left it ; since which it had become dilapidated, but he had repaired and improved it to make it suitable for a licensed house. He could have let it as a board and lodging house, but kept it vacant expecting to get the license back to it. Application refused on the grounds of the premises being unsuitable, — no necessity for a public house in the neighbourhood and on general grounds.
