A popular Werribee South eatery is selling its collection of historic photos to raise funds for a good cause.
Apart from food, the Wyndham Cache café and deli is known for the images decorating its walls, which show scenes from Werribee and Werribee South’s past, including its agricultural heritage.
The cafe and deli is located next to LT’s Egg Farm, a third-generation family business run by sisters Renay Ahmed and Danyel Cucinotta.
The siblings said that Wyndham Cache was renovated during the first pandemic lockdown. As a result the historic photos were taken down. The sisters have since decided to sell the photos to raise funds for the Rotary Club of Werribee, of which their father Brian is past
All proceeds raised through the photo sales
will be donated to the Rotary Club, to go towards local community projects.
“Although the majority of photos have been taken down, the local history is embedded in our walls,” Ms Ahmed said. “The history remains in our core with our family and our extended family of customers.”
The sisters said that of about 200 images, they have sold about a quarter – including some to the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of people depicted in the pictures.
Potential buyers are welcome to contact Brian on firstname.lastname@example.org if they are interested in purchasing photos.
