Carol had a great interest in the history of Tasmania. This photo was taken at Elizabeth Town. While the building was built by convicts, it would appear it’s been refurbished ~ Greg Hale

Elizabeth Town: ETC Bakery

As it happens, we published an article about ETC Bakery in Elizabeth Town back in 2012. When we remarked on the old building within view of the dining room, Carol had this comment to share…

The building containing the ETC Bakery was in fact the old Elizabeth Town pub; had many a meal in there years ago when travelling to the lakes with my Dad. The old building behind is convict built and was the original stables to the pub. People travelling by horse would pay to have their horse stabled for the night, while they stayed in accommodation rooms at the pub. I have a journal entry of a teacher back in the late 1800s that states he slept the night in the stables there. He loved his horse so much he couldn’t leave it to sleep alone!

Carol always provided a wealth of additional information for Think Tasmania readers.
