Bridge Hotel, built in 1858

Of the many hotels in the area, only two survive (though considerably changed) which are the Bridge Hotel, built in 1858, now the Jim Dandy (pictured during the 1940's/50's), and the Albion Hotel, built in 1891 and run by Mrs McQuade. Mrs Janet Bowman ran one of the first boarding houses in Dandenong. It opened in 1861, on the corner of Scott and Lonsdale Streets. It continued until about 1900, when it was destroyed by fire.
