Description: CHARLES HENRY HUNT (1857-1938) HYDRO - MAJESTIC HOTEL / MEDLOW BATH. Circa 1920.
30x39 1/2 inches, 76x100 1/2 cm. Bloxham & Chambers Ltd., Sydney.
Condition B+: repaired tears, minor restored losses and overpainting in margins; minor creases and restoration in margins and image and along vertical folds; light staining in upper image; offsetting in left margin.
The Hydro-Majestic Hotel opened in 1904. The modern health resort had its own generator and is said to have had electricity several days before the city of Sydney was first electrified. Its time as a spa was short-lived, however, and it was soon being promoted for its leisure activities and luxurious appointments. Here, tennis, golf, costumed dances, orchestras, picnics, billiards, motoring and swimming are all presented surrounding the hotel in the Blue Mountains and the staggering vista of the Megalong Valley. As a fire destroyed a large portion of the hotel in 1922, it is presumed that this poster predates that event.
