Salisbury Hotel

The Salisbury Hotel
The Salisbury Hotel at 112 Percival Street in Stanmore has proved a very difficult subject to research.

Thanks to a reader I have learned that it was constructed as a Federation building (date unknown) and was rebuilt in 1935 by H.E. Ross & Rowe architects. The facade was extensively modified and the interior changed to allow for a better service during the "six-o'clock swill". A garage was also added at the back .

I would appreciate any information you may be able to provide to add to this post.
