Lakemba, pub

Lakemba Hotel is a pub which was built in 1928 and is located along Haldon Street in the south western suburb of Lakemba. The suburb takes its name from property in this area named "Lakeba" (pronounced Lakemba) after the Lakeba island in the Lau Islands group of Fiji. Benjamin Taylor was the property owner and his second wife's grandparents, Rev and Mrs Cross, were missionaries on that island from 1835.
