Photographer's Note

Cartoon becomes reality! Or life follows art... The Ettamogah in Table Top near Albury is a cartoon pub that was featured in the now defunct Australasian Post magazine. The cartoonist Ken Maynard, loving empty spaces and having nothing around him, enjoyed an area just outside of Albury at Table Top, named Ettamogah, thus christening the name of his now famous pub the "Ettamogah Pub" . The first "Ettamogah Pub" of a chain of such pubs was built there and copies now exist in various parts of Australia including Sydney, the Sunshine Coast and Cunderdin. The pub was built by businessman Lindsay Cooper and first opened in 1987. The timber building featured sloping walls and a distinctive architectural style true to the original cartoon design.

The writing on the side says:
Ettamogah Pub
Beer mate
It pleases th' palate...
It tickles th' tonsils...
It kicks over th' starter motor...
It cleans out th' carby...
It eradicates fruit fly...
Paterson's curse...
Agapanthus...
Cattle tick...
Codlin moth...
And tastes good too mate!
