Thank you for your comments Ken Hall. Bill Gannon was my grandfather, and he looked after so many people over the years. He would always take in and/or look after people in need, and every Christmas would provide free dinner to anyone who needed it. He would also provide them with clean clothes if required. It is so lovely that to this day his name lives on. We are very proud of him, and that his name lives on in the West. He certainly deserves it.

In 1957 nothing like to day Julia Creek was a wild town. Just looking at someone would lead to a fight. While living around the town of Julia Creek I got very sick the owner of the Gannons Hotel took me in and really saved my life. You can read this in my book “What Next You Bastard” funny thing I was thousands of miles from my home in Brisbane, at this time I did not know Mr. Gannons knew my mother and kept her up to date on my welfare. A small world we live in. I still enjoy having a beer at Gannons Hotel. Author Ken Hall
