Campbell's Commercial Hotel faces Queen's Hotel on Gill Street and Dan O'Connell Hotel is on Mosman Street.

JoanneKlein adds:
The Street that crosses from L to R is Mosman Street named after an Aboriginal 'boy' named Jupiter who 'belonged' to Hugh Mosman. Mosman, George Clarke and John Fraser registered 'their find' with the Mining Registrar at Ravenswood. His name was William Charters. Jupiter found the gold on Christmas Day, 1872.
