So, your grandmother, your mother, yourself and your daughter all worked on the stall?

Yeah.

And so where do you get the… where do you source the fruit and vegetables?

In the fruit market.

Down in Smithfield? Or …

No, the Corperation Fruit Market.

Oh, where’s that now?

It’s up beside the Tax Office, you know there?

Oh yeah, up on Mount Street is it?

No, over where you pay your motor tax, near the Bridewell.

Okay, I know the place.
