I made a comment about “I learned about Peter Jackson by seeing Bad Taste at Melbourne’s Valhalla Cinema” a few posts back. Anyway, this turned up while doing some clean out. I’m sorry that the Loaded Dog Brochure didn’t photograph well. I should take a picture of the Loaded Dog Statue, which is something I’ve missed a few times.
I would have liked a picture with my arm around the Loaded Dog standing at the bar, which is something which will never happen since it is now apartments.
A couple of bits of trivia about the Loaded Dog, which was short story by Henry Lawson. Lawson was on one side of the old Australian $10 note, (right below). On the front was Francis Greenway, who was a convicted forger. Greenway was transported to Australia for forgery. I would also add that this note was supposedly one that was frequently counterfeited.
If anyone knows where the Dog Statue has gone to…
