James Fewell

The Prestoungrange Gothenburg, James Fewell Bar
by Kate Hunter

James Fewell became manager of the Gothenburg shortly after it opened in 1908 and stayed for the next 19 years. The main bar is named in his honour and his tenure is documented in Kate Hunter’s small mural above the fireplace. James Fewell’s portrait dominates the mural, which also features his wife and two daughters and an article from the local paper from 1908 announcing the opening of the premises.
