Another Lister revealed - Michael Lightfoot and Family at Ettamogah Pub

Michael just sent this -it's a better one of the Ettamogah's roof, important you see the old truck up there - 'Why is it there?' I hear you say - I have no idea. Why not?

Michael is pictured with his wife & baby daughter and sister in law on holiday. Now, how do we explain the Ettamogah Pub? Hmmm - Ken Maynard was a cartoonist who depicted buildings which defied the laws of gravity - someone had a bright idea that it would be good to build his Ettamogah Pub just as it was depicted in the cartoons .... it is now a 'must see' if we take the Piddlesbury down the Hume Highway south, it's just near Albury.

Notice the names on the toilet door.

"blokes s'house, can, crapper, thundabox, men".

The cartoon behind my head has a racehorse with an anchor, 200lbs, a couple of bags of sand on its back and bricks attached to its legs. The jockey is saying "Yeah boss... I could have gone faster... but I had ter wait for th' horse!"
