This was the second of the two buildings used at Hill End by GH Bryant to ply his butcher’s trade. The first was located in Tambaroora Road just to the north of the Royal Hotel.
The backyard garden which stands between Athol and Bryant’s Butcher Shop, is typical of the vegetable patches that once crowded out Hill End’s backyards. The town’s isolation prior to the arrival of motor transport ensured that people here were dependent on locally grown produce for their fresh food supplies.
Many of the fruit trees, garden plantings and ornamental species established here survive to this day and provide us with important evidence of the plant varieties of that era.
