Boom days at the Whyte River Hotel
as recalled by ‘The Tame Tasmanian’ (Garnet Smith) 
 
The sight of this hotel opened the floodgates of my memory…Well I remember some pleasant evenings among the boys, all good fellows, whose motto was ‘fill’em up for everyone.’ Tommy Prouse would be at one end of the room singing ‘Just as the sun went down,’ with Joe Jupp at the other, singing ‘Little Brown Jug’. While 'Little Jos' would be trying to make himself heard with ‘Mary of Argyle.’ Here it was that I last heard poor ‘Scottie’ Fraser sing… 
 
I remember sitting in front of the hotel one day [when] a Swede, who lived close by, arrived with a badger on his back. He was in a very bad temper….
