Paino family

Salvatore Paino, the patriarch, arrived from Filicudi in 1913, and began business with the Roma Fruit Palace at 62 Market Street in 1921/1922, and in 1928 extended it to the two neighbouring shops at 58-60 with the Fremantle Fish Supply, which would eventually become Sealanes. His sons Victor, Sam and Anthony joined him in the business of ship provisioning, followed by Victor's sons, Mark and Paul. Salvatore died in 1966. Sealanes moved from Market Street to Marine Terrace in 1972.
