In the four years the hotel was owned by Mr. Evans Tattersall's acquired its name and considerable improvements were made.Â He constructed a two story wing along Wickham Street and an American Bowling Alley, as well as expanding the building to contain 15 rooms, three sitting rooms, a tap room, a larger circular bar and an underground cellar, kitchen and stables. In 1872 Evans turned his attention to the construction of the Queens Hotel and Tattersalls's was placed in the hands of Licensees, J.B. Robson and later James Lynch, before being taken over by Mr James McGrath in 1874. In 1886 Tom Enright became licensee of Tattersall's and it was about this time that it became Townsville's first bus terminal and it continued in that role for nearly a century. Thomas Enright was a major figure in Townsville becoming Mayor of the City and a keen supporter of the Townsville Turf Club.Â The racing fraternity of the day put considerable store in Enright's â€˜Tattersall's Consultations', the most reliable racing guide available. When the full force of the depression hit Townsville in 1893, Enright and fellow businessman J.W. Castling lent the Municipal Council 1000 pounds to provide relief for the unemployed.
