Redfern, Glengarry Castle Hotel

Glengarry Castle Hotel is located on the corner of Lawson Street and Abercrombie Street, in the inner city suburb of Redfern. The hotel was established before 1880. This is an old photo, so the prices of beer in schooners and jugs will not be as cheap as the banners advertise. The exterior of this pub has recently been repainted to a neutral colour scheme but I prefer this style, even with the paint peeling. The red mini waiting at the traffic lights, matched the colour scheme too.

  5. I would get rid of the paint flakes and get rid of the naff advertising, and restore the building to its original loveliness. This historic building deserves it.

  6. Hmmmm. It would benefit from losing the scaffolding and signs.

  8. There are still rooms?

    You heard about our Bird Cage which cost millions to move?

  9. Ann, many of these old pubs still provide rooms for rent. I haven't heard anything about a Bird Cage.

  10. A suburb called Redfern? How very interesting. I have relatives whose last name is Redfearn!

    THE SEEKER OF RUBY AND RED

    The seeker of ruby and red
    Will not let green go to her head;
    Instead she will seek
    Her senses to pique
    With cherry and crimson instead.

  11. Great old building! Sometimes the old is even better than the new. Hope they keep it in good repair so it will be there for many years. Mickie :)

  12. Magical Mystical Teacher, like a lot of Sydney suburbs, it was named after an early settler, William Redfern, who was granted land in this area in 1817.

  13. I love building that are in the “flat iron” style of architecture. The red and white car in the front adds a great splash of color to the shot. Nice work.
