Tradesman anyone?

Our street is a cul-de-sac: perhaps 500m long, winds around down and along a ridge of Middle Harbour. It is upper-middle-class according to socio-economic data. Collectively, we do a grand job at keeping trades-people employed. The street is constantly abuzz with tradies doing small jobs, as well as builders renovating the dickens out of 60 year-old "cottages".

This seems to be their vehicle of choice. A "ute" with a tray-back with wooden drop-down sides. On the tray is padlocked the obligatory heavy aluminium tool box - or three. Often they have a blue-heeler yapping from the tray when in motion, but watchful from beneath when master is at work.
