Whereas many pubs would stand proudly on the corner of Harris & John Street, Pyrmont's Terminus Hotel, lounges, or leans, or squats. Her pride has been vanquished by neglect, her appearance strangled by creeping ivy.
This pub stood at the end point of the Pyrmont tram from the city. The tram would rattle down Harris Street chuck a rightie into John Steet, do a uwie at the bottom and come up up again to begin the return journey to the city. Opening in 1917, the Terminus Hotel was closed prior to 1991. It is owned by a wealthy Eastern Suburbs couple who think that 'benign neglect' is an investment strategy.
