A pho­to­graph of F. Daniels and Sons cor­dial fac­tory in Palmerston Street, War­ragul prior to its de­mo­li­tion in 1965.

The pho­to­graph also shows the RSL Hall on the left.

This site is to­day home to the Link Ar­cade and sur­round­ing stores.

The cor­dial fac­tory was orig­i­nally es­tab­lished by the Robin­son fam­ily in 1886. Shortly after Mr Robin­son died and the busi­ness was car­ried on by his widow Mar­garet.

It was sold to Mrs M. Thor­ley in 1911 and Fred­er­ick Daniels and Sons in 1914. Mr Daniels car­ried on the busi­ness with his sons Wil­liam and Clem.

The busi­ness was later sold to Palex in the late 1940s.

In 1952, Wil­liam started a new fac­tory un­der the name Xtra in Glad­stone Street which was sub­se­quently run by his sons John and Michael Daniels.
