In 1887, William Bramwell Withers wrote: ‘Cordial factories in Ballarat are three in number, namely, E. Rowlands (late Rowlands and Lewis), in Dana street; O’Hehir and Co., in Errard street; and T. A. Hawkins and Co., in Lydiard street. They all manufacture aerated waters and cordials, but Rowlands’ factory, as being the first in Ballarat, and as being one whose fame and extent ate quite unique in the colony, demands special notice’.[1]
