Everyman's Hut in Stanley Street, Townsville
Everyman's Welfare Service established an Everyman's Hut in Stanley Street, Townsville during WW2. It was located between Flinders Street and Sturt Street. To the right of the store in the above photograph was Lowth's Hotel. Heatley's Department Store can be seen behind the Everyman's Hut. Old time dances were held on the first floor of the Heatley's building. Access was via Sturt Street. Heatley's Store itself was located on the ground floor and was accessed via Flinders Street.
The YMCA was located behind Lowth's Hotel. The Civic Dance Hall was located on the first floor of that building. It was accessed via a stairway entrance in Flinders Street.
Can anyone help me with more information?
