PICTURE COURTESY OF B Alleway of www.icecreamcatering.co.uk

His jingles could be heard from afar
as he drove into our street
a magical vehicle on four wheels
ready to give us a treat.

Ice cream so delicious
and change to buy a sweet
those days were so spectacular
expectations we could meet.



Shouting up to mum
to get a couple of pence
the din was overpowering
as you climbed onto the fence.

The World was your oyster
as you chose a delicious ice cream
the only thing annoying
was finding out he had been!

Sometimes we would have enough
to buy a sweet or two
so you were happy for a little while
and your mates were happy too.

He came around our street
twenty times a day
but your parents were very dubious
to give their money away.

Money was more valuable then
before pre decimal was introduced
it stretched a little further
more goods it produced.


I remember the seventies well, we had an ice cream van, who came into our street about twenty times a day, especially in the summer, our parents were demented as each time he came, we would want money for sweets, thinking back, they must have been angry lol, as we shouted our hearts out up to our house to get money for the "ice cream van"

Did you have an ice cream van visiting your street?
