Glasgow Arms Hotel – interior of public bar 1940

The new modern Glasgow Arms Hotel in Carrington, Newcastle, a Tooheys tied-hotel from around 1916, was rebuilt by Tooheys Limited in 1939. The new hotel was built on a prominent island block across the street from the old premises. It was designed by the well-known Newcastle architectural firm Castleden & Sara in the modernist style, with geometric tiling beneath the concrete cantilever awning and a curved tower that addressed the corner. The hotel name was set projecting from the wall face, providing shadow and emphasis. The long curved public bar ran the 20 m length of Young Street, maximising serving capacity.
