Beer & Water


Drinking fountain at the tram waiting sheds outside Sydney Railway Square (Central) 1930s. Picture: City of Sydney Archives.

THE Sydney Sun reports that the city council has placed a bubbling water fountain outside the main entrance to a large local brewery. Whether this is a hint on the part of the city council for the brewery employees to get on the ‘water- wagon’ is not known, but, it is a coincidence that quite a number of the officers of the council are prohibitionists, and that the placing of the fountains is in their hands.

If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
