Help Me Through The World

1834 Thomas Twining, Help me Through World, Wellington street
This might have become the Kangaroo

Launceston Advertiser, 16 October 1834

In 1825 there were many signs of prosperity. The Gazette informs us that there were seven new public house licenses issued. The houses were The Black Bull, Caledonian, Red Lion, Rose and Thistle, Jolly Sailor, Commercial Tavern, and Help me through the World. The last mentioned stood in Brisbane Street, on the present site of Mr. R. D. Richard’s establishment. It had a large swinging signboard, on one side of which was depicted the world, with a man’s head and shoulders apparently coming though it, and on the reverse, the world again, with the heels and under parts of the man, with the words “Help me through the world” beneath.
