Interviewed by Rosemary Christmas on 10 May 2000

John Steel. My grandfather arrived in Mosman in 1891 and set up what was Mosman’s first grocery store. It was really a general store, and it became the oldest established grocery store in Mosman up until about the 1950s when it was then shut down and sold off and became the BP Service Station on the corner of Cowls Road and Avenue Road, which is still there.
