Bit of background i pinched off the net...
White Tomkins & Courage Ltd manufactured a number of products - one listing describes them as 'Distillers of Essential Oils, Fruit and Flavouring Essences, Manufacturer of Fine Chemicals and Flower Oils'. Their mills were used to produce tapioca, maize and flaked rice.

With imported raw ingredients arriving from afar, storage facilities had to be built at docks around the country. The silo built at Stanley Dock allowed imported grain to be carried off visiting ships and stored for later transport.
