Ha! Thankyou Jan. You've solved a mystery that I've been trying to unravel for some time. I've spent an age trying to work out the faded signage on the wall of that building; squinting my eyes, taking photographs at different angles/time of day, filtering through Photoshop, etc and could only ever get the 'C. Isler artesian....', so that's who they were. Did it extend to the whole of that site, down to Dolben St which has a nice triptych of building materials (hopefully I can post a pic) which faces a bare patch of land?
I also find the rather elaborate architectural feature of white corner stone amusing, can someone explain why it looks like this, at the junction with Trevaris St/Bear Lane
The company sounds fascinating, what exactly were they drilling for/who?
