The West Coast Was Famous For Its Hotels

During the gold-rush there were hundreds of hastily built hotels and shanties whose proprietors were eager to cater to the miner's legendary thirst. They usually had an imposing frontage and tried to employ handsome barmaids in order to convince miners that it was a convivial place to spend thier gold.
The veranda posts on the Golden Nugget Hotel are from the Dominion Hotel, Greymouth and the batwing doors are from the long gone New River Hotel at Dunganville

The Golden Nugget is also the place at Shantytown where the Old Time Photos are taken
