Mr Whippy

Back in the distant past I can remember the sound of the music from “Mr Whippy” as his ice cream van arrived in the neighbourhood.  

When walking yesterday I actually came across his original van.  Well it looks like the van I remember from my childhood!

Unfortunately he wasn’t selling cones at the price I remember and so he missed on my patronage. Smile

It’s interesting how small facts can stick in your memory.  Aniseed balls were 5 for 1p and a bag of hot chips could be purchased for 3p.  Going to the theatre to watch the Sunday matinee cost 6p.
