Attached to one of the prints is an original article cutting from a paper about this breweries origins: " Mr. Whitmore, who is about to establish a brewery and manufactory of aerated water, cordials, etc., has made some progress in the erection of premises beside the creek, and in sinking only a few feet for water, has been fortunate enough to find an ample supply. This water is softer than that obtained from the wells ordinarily sunk here to the depths of from 20 to 30 feet, and is expected will be found well adapt(able to) brewing."
