Summary: The book contains an account of past and present hotels and inns of Parramatta, dating from 1800 to the present 2018. In the 16th century, as far as the people of Edinburgh were concerned, the world outside their city gates was no longer theirs and hence the name, the World's End. Today that gate location is a well-known tourist pub 'The World's End'.The true World's End for British convicts and soldiers would have been the penal colonies at Sydney Cove and Parramatta. Strangely in researching this book on the pubs of Parramatta, I didn't find any overwhelming negativity in the naming of the plethora of inns and pubs. There may have been a Struggler, which was possibly a misspelt Straggler (a sheep reference), but in general they were about hope (The Hope and Anchor); enterprise (Woolpack); sea voyagers (The Jolly Sailor); or just reminders of home (The Rose, Thistle and Shamrock or a Royal Oak). I don't believe it was the World's End to most, I think it offered a fresh start, a place to hang a hat and to enjoy rum or a beer with a mate. Unlocking stories from the past is hard, cover-ups are rife. Grandma didn't want you to know that Great Grandad was a convict or that Aunt Nellie was murdered by Uncle Pete. Chinese whispers are passed on. Truth became tales, then tales to urban myths and occasionally legends. Parramatta history is no exception to the rule.---Taken from the introduction.
