Newling’s Cordial Factory – Kim Core

how does one move back

in time

to catch the taste of ambrosia

 

by remembering the colour

creaming soda, ginger beer

pineapple, passiona

 

a snippet of a lost recipe

 

gallons of spring water

 

the productivity of the workers

the syrup maker

 

the 1800’s

Manly, then Parramatta

the move into

the country

 

the father, sons

Cowra, Canowindra, Boorowa

 

the art of delivery

loading and unloading

 

handmade boxes

the name stamped

in the memory
