SUGAR. - Manufacture of Beet Root Sugar. Copy of two despatches from the Agent-General ... with estimates of sugar-houses, plans, drawings of machinery, etc.

Melbourne, Govt Printer 1871. Foolscap, disbound in a modern plain wrapper; 15pp and eight litho plates (three folding). ¶ The foundation of a sugar industry in Victoria, an attempt to match the rapidly burgeoning cane sugar industry of NSW and Queensland, was no great success. The Victorian Beetroot Sugar Company was registered in November, crops were planted near Geelong, a mill built nearby and plants built in Melbourne. By 1874 the mill was closed. The fault lay with the quantity and quality of crop and seems to have remained so in later attempts to create a southern sugar industry. This report contains information gathered for the Warnambool Beet-root Sugar Manufactory giving plans and estimates of plants for works of two capacities. Pretty appealing and useful for the student of industrial architecture, manufactures and machinery. And sugar.
