Ice cream vans

Ice cream vans! We'll miss them when they finally disappear forever, wiped out by parental scepticism, home refrigeration and health inspectors. The fairground liveries, the windows thick with stickers, the generous strap line FRESHLY MADE - JUST FOR YOU and the cautionary legend on the back MIND THAT CHILD. The raucous rasping chimes, the taste of stale wafers and cones, the amateur graphics (approximating Disney characters), the slight whiff of the unreliable.
