Remembering C.J. Dennis

Hughesy CJ Dennis

Back in Auburn, dining options needed investigating. 

A walk around the village revealed the presence of a pizza operation that closed at eight o’clock (last orders half an hour earlier), so we decided to stroll back to the cottage, phone in an order just after seven and have an early night.

And, on the way back, we passed this little reminder that Auburn was the birthplace of the noted Australian poet and humorist C.J. Dennis. His fther was a publican, and a scale model of the structure where Dennis arrived in the world sits on the corner of the block where the pub once stood.
