Four of the Chinn brothers were involved in this business. In the 1940s, the Chinn brothers, like most of the Chinese fruit and vegetable wholesalers in Little Bourke Street, moved their premises to the Queen Victoria Market as part of a general process of centralizing all fruit and vegetable wholesaling on the Queen Victoria site.
