Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Throughout the 19th century and the early years of the 20th century hotels provided a valuable service to local residents as well as essential accommodation and food for tourists and travellers. Hotels ranged in size from tiny hovels to grand edifices but the one thing almost all of them had in common was a liquor licence. The cultural and social needs of the community had to be catered for and hotels served a special role as meeting places for individuals and a multitude of social, sevice, and sporting organisations."-- from the introduction.
