Charlie Steene, posing with his greengrocers' wagon in next to his home at 69 Sussex Road, Brixton. The Steene brothers, Charlie, Sam and Harry, turned from an early age to street trading as a means of employment. Later Sam recalled: 'We would come out of school at 4.30pm and my eldest brother Charlie would be waiting with a barrow load of firewood and we would go round the streets and sell it at 2p a basket'.
