THE GREAT NORTHERN HOTEL , ART DECO DECAY

Newcastle
THE NORTHERN HOTEL
What a sad place, potentially one of the best Art Deco pubs in NSW run down to a sad and pathetic travesty of what it should be/ could be
It even smells like wet carpet ? The stools are creaky and rocky the table stained the floor worn, I suppose it is polished concrete, which makes you wonder where the smell comes from, the ceiling , who knows ,where is the opulence the rich luscious ness of yesteryear.
I thought when I saw this place about five years ago it was a shame, now I think that it is criminal to allow this building to sink to such depths of disrepair.
I don’t know who owns it or who is responsible for the condition of the Great Northern Hotel but even the local council must bear some of the “blame”
Maybe Newcastle has so many Art Deco buildings that they can afford to loose one but whose heritage are they throwing away.
