FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Staying cool through the years

FROM THE ARCHIVES: The Bathurst 1000

Above, click through the carousel for a gallery of images from the Newcastle Herald archives cataloguing our history from 1900 to 1920.

The Grand Hotel, on the corner of Church and Bolton streets, Newcastle, has seen some changes over the years. 

Not to mention the patronage of hundreds of legal eagles, judges and criminals. And journalists. 

The old pub faces more changes in clientele in the near future, as the  legal precinct shifts west. 

Move your cursor over the vintage image, shot on glass negative more than a century ago by the Kerry photographic studio. Watch as past and future blend, and ponder the changes the future has in store. 

The photo is one of hundreds collated here in our  latest "Archival Revival" release of pictures dredged from its physical and digital archives and placed on the web for readers to enjoy.
