The Thursday Quote

“The Coles family had been strict Presbyterians, and even though they had come into possession of liquor licence with the Matthews Thompson purchase (in 1960), they didn’t use them until 1971 when the Coles New World store at Warrnambool, in Victoria, became the first to sell alcohol.”
