Horse and wagon plus group of people and dogs in front of the Victoria Hotel, Cromwell. 'J Stuart' painted above door. Early 1900's copy of old photograph in modern frame.
The Victoria Hotel was built in 1874 by James Stuart, who was licensee until 1899 when he died. His wife took over the licence. The Victoria Arms Hotel was established in 1899 on Melmore Terrace. "The Vic" was known locally in latter years as the "Top Pub" because of its location on the higher elevation of the terrace.
