Comments:

James Massie had been a blacksmith in Wellington Street before he turned to hotel-keeping. He first spent a year or two as licensee of the Star Hotel in nearby Peel Street before building his own hotel. He was the publican until the 1890s, and retained ownership of the building until its closure by the Licenses Reduction Board. At the hearing regarding the amount of compensation to be paid, Mr Johnson, a City of Collingwood valuer, and Mr Ashwood, architect and formerly house and land agent, gave evidence. Mr Johnson said that the valuation of the place was 80 pounds a year, and the rent was 2 pounds a week, which he considered fair. As a dwelling the house would be worth about 15/- or 16/- a week. Mr Ashworth thought that the hotel was worth 1,300 pounds and the vacant land 150 pounds. Delicensed, as a private house it would probably be worth 15/- per week and as a shop after extensive alterations say, 1 pound. Its capital value without a license would be about 575 pounds. ( The Argus, 17 July 1908 )
