Here's an earlier shot - probably from NMET&LCo days.

The pic is from Ron Scholten's collection and shows the original centre poles in the Newmarket shopping strip.

The Doutta Galla hotel is alive and well - the local population has changed from workers at the stock saleyards to trendy inner city residents including my daughter.

The pub dates from 1888 and is named after the first nations people that John Batman signed his notorious 'treaty' with.
