The Russell Hotel - 143A George Street, The Rocks

The Russell Hotel stands on the corner of the street.

It was built in 1887 and was originally called the Port Jackson hotel. On the side wall in Globe Street you can see the colourful traces of a sign advertising “McEwan’s Pale Ale”, dating to around 1900 and uncovered during conservation works. Walk up Globe Street towards the modern brick building. Globe Street once connected George Street and Harrington Street however it now terminates in stairs. At the end of Globe Street is the State Records Office where the records of the early colony and indeed records relating to the whole of New South Wales are kept. Convict records, census records and other colonial papers and early maps are used by people tracing their family trees and by historians alike.
