Some of the pubs and hotels that used to dot Perth, some are still here in a renewed form but most are gone forever (I think I have all locations correct?!) oh and I think you'll soon get a bit sad like I am that these were all demolished once you click the links and see what replaced them.....
The Adelphi Hotel, cnr Mill and St Georges Tce. Demolished to build this.
The Palace Hotel, St Georges Tce. Only the facade remains with the hideous Bankwest tower climbing out of its back rooms.
I'm not a big fan of facadism, but I guess they at least left something
The Melbourne Hotel, Milligan and Hay st. Now known as The Old Melbourne Hotel, thankfully restored and still operating
Hotel Australia, was next door to the old Boans building in Murray st. Demolished to build the Myer Building
The Great Western, still there, you know it as the Brass Monkey
The Bohemia Hotel, now part of the Wentworth Hotel on Murray and William
The George Hotel, Murray and George st, West Perth, demolished for this.
The Esplanade, cnr Howard st and The Esplanade.
Its demolishing was one of the great crimes of the last century. Have you seen what's there now?
The Federal Hotel, 179 Wellington St Perth
The Grosvenor Hotel, still going despite the neighbours complaints
The King Edward Hotel, cnr Pier and Hay st
which later became the Paddington Hotel
and was then demolished to build the horrendous Kings Hotel
