Billy the Bus BS: Ettamogah Pub (13) BS: Ettamogah Pub 12 Jul 04

G'day Oz-cobs,

Thanks to insomnia, whisky and a bad bout of nostalgia, I trawled the Net last night. Among other things, I wamted to find some Ken Maynard cartoons from the Australian Post of the illustrious Ettamogah Pub - alas, I didn't find a single sample of his 40 or so years of pen-scratching...;(

Howsomever, I did find snapshots of several 'replica' Ettamogah Pubs that have been built in recent years. IMHO the 'original' at Albury, where Ken lived should be the ONLY one - trust the Gold Coast to bet in on the act - and I see there's a franchise to build 'em world-wide - grumble, mutter...

Anyway.... can any of you point me to the original B&W cartoons?

Mumble... now I'll have to go and look for Saltbush Bill and Wichety's Tribe - great stuff, weren't it!

And turn off all those blasted searchlights on the front of your road-train - I don't want to get scorched at this distance!!!!!

Cheers - Sam - in Kiwiland
