Ever had an A&W root beer? Then you've enjoyed the products of the J. Hungerford Smith Co., depicted in this sign along the railroad tracks between E. Main St. and Circle St. in Rochester. J. Hungerford Smith made the syrup from which A&W is made, and they bought A&W Root Beer Company itself in 1963.
The company was based in Rochester. According to Soda Fountain & Ice Cream Collectibles, J. Hungerford Smith was founded in the 1880's, and flourished from 1900-1915. The company still exists today.
You can see a photo of an 1890's jug of J. Hungerford Smith Co.'s "True Fruits" syrup at the Antique Medicine Bottles site.
Finally, here's a great ad for the company's Royal Purple Grape Juice.
