Early View Of Pegasus Arms

Came across this awesome image the other day, taken just east of the Montreal Street Bridge as seen in photo, the photographer most likely standing on Cambridge Terrace, a stone throw from the Antiqua Boat Sheds.

The second building from the right is the Pegasus Arms.  As the year is unknown, I am guessing that at this time, the Pegasus Arms was a doctor surgery and ambulance service.  One of the doctor’s that worked there was Dr. Benjamin Moorhouse, the brother of William Sefton Moorhouse, one of our Superintendents. The night bell of the surgery is till beside the front door today!
