This is a simple site to bring together all my various bits and pieces. The  interesting bits are in the menus.

The images at the top of the site are from postcards I have.

  1. Hi,
    Absolutely wonderful reading your article about the first hotels in Launceston. My ggggrandfather was George David Burgess, the licencee of the Black Swan. I have been searching around for a photo to much avail and was excited to see the 1885 photo of The Wilmot Arms, formerly The Black Swan. My mum is a Burgess. She will be very excited to see the photo.
    George went on to own a number of pubs around Launceston throughout his life.
