Benjamin Shambrook started a cordial factory in Cooktown in 1890. His son William Shambrook opened a subsidiary of this business in Toogoolawah in 1912 and ran it until 1925. This bottle, marked with William's name, dates to that time. William later went into partnership with his son Ben Shambrook, taking over a factory in Mackay and changing the company's name to 'Shamies Cordials' in 1945, and later 'Shammy's' in 1958.
