Ghost town....Old Royal Hotel - Linda Valley Cafe....West Coast of Tasmania

.....Linda is an old ghost town in the Linda Valley in the West Coast Range of Tasmania, Australia.

.... It was the town supporting the North Mount Lyell mine. When North Mount Lyell was taken over by Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company in 1903, Linda was quickly reduced in significance and eventually most residents moved to Gormanston, the nearby Mount Lyell town.

.....Linda Post Office opened on 18 December 1899 and closed in 1966.

.....The original Royal Hotel at Linda was rebuilt in 1910 following a fire which started in Mr. J. Clay's boot shop and spread to Kelly's Hall and the Royal Hotel.

....The Hotel was finally closed in 1952.
