The noticeboard that transports one back to the past
Other than the air-wells, one feature that I like about The Great Southern Hotel that I had stayed in while I was in Sydney was the noticeboard near the main entrance. With a lot of imagination, this noticeboard has a strange power of transporting one back to the past.
It was simply great to realise that the hotel's management takes pride in the history and heritage of the building. If there could be a mini-tour that would brief guests of the history of the hotel building, I would be the first to register. It is all because I believe that in understanding one's present, it helps to appreciate one's past.
