Gunning Memorial All Services Club - do you have any photos?

This is the only historic photo I have been able to locate of the building that was the Gunning Memorial All Services (GMAS) Club.  The property was purchased by GMAS on 13 September 1950; this photo is from 1958 and shows the porch, storeroom, kitchen and snooker room extension completed earlier that year.

The building was originally built by the Sons of Temperance (Albert Division) and was opened on 11 April 1882.  It was taken over by the Grand United Order of Oddfellows in 1909 and was used extensively until the late 1930s.

GMAS added a dance hall extension in 1964 (between the car and main hall in the photo above) and a major expansion was completed in 1975, including a large auditorium.

I am interested in any photos that show the other stages of the building. If you have photos, information or anecdotes, please email (greg@murphy.org) or leave comments below.
