The Central Hotel is visible on the right of this postcard of the Square from around 1908. The Central Hotel was built in the 1890s on the corner of Andrew Young Street and Main Street (having relocated from The Square). The business continued until 1969. To the left is the railway line that once ran down Main Street. The focal point of the postcard is a man driving a horse and cart.
