Royal Enfield sold at Royal Hotel

In Canberra, Australia, in Crawford Street, is the Royal Hotel, which was built in 1926. When Canberra and the old Parliament House were being built the politicians and dignitaries would stay at the Royal enjoying the comforts of its fine Pub. Now it is not a hotel anymore, but a collection of stores. The Royal Enfield dealer in the 1950's (the ad is from The Canberra Times Thursday 9 February 1950) had its address as 237 Crawford Street, which is one of the stores in the hotel. The other dealer listed in the ad has as address 28 Eyre Street. I cannot tell if this building is old enough, but is surely looks tempting...
