Heard Under The Sheds

Sunglasses Needed Here - This is the second week in a row that we have had a photo of our illustrious cleaner, Pete, on and this time it is in reference to his new uniform which according to Tony Pierrakos is eye dazzling. I think we can see what Tony means.
Incidentally, the editor of Victraders was almost refused service at Romeo's Cafe this week for daring to suggest that Pete's job may be at risk with the QVM cleaning contract under review. See last week's "Heard Under The Sheds". Pete is obviously highly respected in many quarters.

American Doughnut Kitchen Seeks Photos - Karl from the American Doughnut Kitchen has asked traders to bring forward any historical photos of the iconic van as it enters its 65th year of operation at QVM and he also congratulates the organisers of the River Trial promotion during the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

We are compiling a history of the business and need your help. If you have any old photos of the van or market activity with the van ""in shot"" we would very much appreciate a copy, or, if you have any stories that you would like to share with us. These can be dropped off at the van, please leave your name so that I can thank you." Karl,  ADK
