The ‘Albion Hotel’ is a popular local hotel which was built in Croydon in the late 1800s and transferred to Normanton in the early years of the twentieth century. It is where Captain Percy Tresize (famous for his stories of Aboriginal dreamtime and the discovery of many Aboriginal art works) drew a series of humorous paintings on the old bar top. They were processed as tiles and are currently on the wall above the front door. The note below the tiles records “The sketches shown here were installed on the bar top, 1959-1960. Each of the 14 sketches depicts a character or characters in a situation that has been immortalised in the style of the bush.
