The mystery of the Nowra Cordials' man has still not been solved.
However, there have been lots of suggestions.
Prolific local historical author Alan Clark's latest offering, Cordial-makers of the Shoalhaven and their bottles, is set to be published next month (October) by the Shoalhaven Historical Society.
The cover of the book features a superb photograph of a young man from Nowra Cordials with a stack of boxes.
But unfortunately at this stage it's not known who he is.
The Shoalhaven Historical Society needs your help - they would love to identify the "young chap" and give it credit in the publication.
The South Coast Register did a story on the new publication a couple of weeks ago, including putting the brilliant image and story on its Facebook pages with a call out for help.

A number of names have been put forward, including Pat Lynas, Rodney Seymour,Teddy Rainsford and even one of the Hollands' but according to society life member Robyn Florance the actual identity of the man in the photo is still unknown.
"We haven't actually had anyone nailed down as the person in the photo," she said.
"It's just such a brilliant photo. We couldn't not use it."
The story of the Nowra cordial industry has certainly attracted a lot of attention.
Adrian Morgan, through the Shoalhaven in the 20th Century Facebook page, recently uploaded a number of Shoalhaven Historical Society photos of the Nowra Cordial Factory fire in September 21, 1968.
The factory was located at the corner of Kinghorne and Douglas streets in Nowra .
Mr Clark said the fire "was a Saturday morning and hundreds of locals gathered to watch the blaze being fought by the local brigade, assisted by the Illaroo Road Bush Fire Brigade, and additional firefighters from HMAS Albatross."
If anyone can identify the young man in the Nowra Cordials photo or has any other local photos featuring the industry please contact Robyn Florance on 0410 387631.
