Long exposure at night time. Harry's Cafe de Wheels parked outside Garden Island, Sydney, NSW.

Harry's Cafe de Wheels is an important part of the Australian way of life. Press photographers and journalists on late jobs, people coming home from night clubs and parties all know Harry's pie and peas, his rissole rolls and coffee.

A visit to the caravan became a 'must' for visiting celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Robert Mitchum and Marlene Dietrich. In 1974, Colonel Sanders stopped at Harry's and enjoyed the food so much that he ate three 'pies and peas' while leaning on his walking stick in front of the caravan.
