A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Tuesday, 12 August 2008


Ken Maynard was a cartoonist who captured the Australian way of life with exquisite characatures, and a cartoon strip based around the goings on in the Pub in outback Andamooka in South Australia.

Being somewhat off the beaten track, most people would never get to see the place so he took a good deal of liberty with the structure, and included a model T on the roof among other features. Perhaps even more unfortunately, someone took it on themselves to share the cartoon with us in real life, and so a series of Ettamogah Pubs have been created around the land.

This is ours.

I've seen the original and also this one. How weird is that! My brother once ran this pub for a while. It can be a bit rough apparently; it's a favourite for the bikers.
