"There was a wholesale fruit merchant, Rezin's, on Regent Quay. Around the time of the war, word got round really quickly when a banana boat came in. I cycled all the way from Great Northern Road as soon as the news reached us. People came from all over to queue up to get a bunch of bananas. Where MUSA is now was also a banana warehouse. Other fruit sellers were Knowles and Veitch Moir."
