The old cob Acheron Accommodation House ( built 1862 ) on Molesworth Station, Marlborough, NZ.
Travellers and drovers taking the inland route between Nelson and Canterbury could receive a meal , a bed and stabling for their horses for two shillings and sixpence.
The iron roof was put over the thatch roof during restoration to protect it and the cob ( mud ) walls.

2 an' 6? Bargain! I didn't realise NZ had £sd.
Like the way it blends in with the background.
