Summary[edit]

Description
English: Part of the Commercial Hotel awaiting removal to higher ground after the 1916 Clermont flood.

...Considering the size of the task of moving a hotel, the procedure did not take long. The contract to move the Grand Hotel was signed in June 1917, the steam engine began its work on 16 August and by 15 September the Grand was opposite its new site on the corner of Capella and Daintree Streets. While the hotel was 'on the road', the boarders had their meals served in the dining room as usual and slept in their rooms each night. The other hotels were also moved in this way, although the Commercial, being so large and built in an 'L' shape plan, was sawn in half and moved in two sections. Other buildings moved by traction engine included several houses and Griffin's store.'.

Pullar's shop and the Queen's Hotel are visible to the right.
