|Building previously described as Collits Inn, Hartley Vale (Postcard: Shirley TUNNICLIFF)|
I bought this postcard from a little boy who was sitting outside Collits Inn at Hartley Vale. He and his mother and sisters lived here at the time. We were given a tour of the house, sheds and the cemetery behind the house.
The shed where Cobb & Co changed horses had never been updated.
Collits Inn is different now as it has been repaired and updated, but has lost some of the charm it had when I saw it first.

According to Terry SMITH, the building in the photo is not Collit's Inn. It may be a small house on the property that later became the Mount York Farm, but the Inn itself was/is constructed of weatherboard, not brick, and is much larger.

Additionally, the website for Collits Inn has a photo showing a smaller house on the property that could be the building shown above.
