"The man who lived downstairs
from me, Mr Grimwade, worked for years with Shades,
delivering the potatoes from a fine green lorry which was always spick and span.
The word 'Kramo' was on the side also,

In the early 1950s, I was often
out with him and his mate in the lorry, and was able
to see behind the scenes of some of the hotels and restaurants as he delivered
the bags of potatoes to them. Health and safety would not allow
