    3. Greetings - have just examined Sands & McDougall index at local library. What a resource that is! I found my grandfather, who, in 1904 was listed as a tailor, however in 1907 was listed as a Wheelmen's outfitter, with a business address of 366a Bourke Street Melb. I am curious as to what a wheelman was. Were there many people employed in that particular occupation? The name gives a vague understanding, but what did the wheelmen wheel? This occupation continued until at least 1926, but by 1930 he was in real estate at Sassafras. Hope someone can enlighten me. Cheers, Nandina
