Former confectionery factory (1923). Only the original brick facade survives. Built for The Walcot Pty Ltd, specialising in medicated sweets and knocking out gear like “Larynoids Chest and Throat Pastilles”. Also produced ‘name’ sweets, such as Lifesavers, under licence. Became an electrical engineer’s plant by the 1960’s. Derelict by the 1990’s. Factory now gone; facade acts as an entry to offices and a barrier wall to the apartments stacked in behind.  Annandale.
