    Description
    This collection of six documents relates to the transport services provided to the brewing firm of Tooth & Co Ltd by Harbour Land and Transport Co Ltd. They consist of one cheque issued to Australian Steamships Co Ltd; one Sydney Ferries receipt for freight fares; and four lists of items transported by Harbour Land & Transport Co Ltd.
    SignificanceThis collection provides an insight into wharfage services which operated at a time when shipping was the major means of freight and transport around Australia.
    HistoryTooth & Co Ltd was established in 1835 by John Tooth and his brother-in-law John Newham who opened a brewery in Sydney called the Kent Brewery. Tooth & Co Ltd became the major brewer of beer in New South Wales and was incorporated in New South Wales in 1888. Tooth & Co Ltd expanded by acquiring the Rechs Waverley Brewery in Sydney in 1921 as well a number of other hotels and land, including the New South Wales franchise of Hungry Jacks. In the 1930s, Tooth & Co Ltd embarked on a marketing campaign to give its pubs a modern image. Amongst other steps, this involved decorating pubs with paintings to advertise the beer. The paintings typically showed men at work or playing sport and included references to local industries or sports. Tooth & Co Ltd was listed on the Sydney Stock Exchange in 1961 and acquired by Carlton & United Breweries in 1983.
