First.

Welcome to the forum.

Second.

I've enlarged the photos of your dad's seriously cool ice cream van.

Third.

Whereabouts was his round?

What music did the van play?

What flavour ice creams did he have, (vanilla and banana, a must, as a minimum)?

Did he do sandwiches in a shell?

Depending on your answers, more questions may follow. :)

My Dad’s Ice Cream round was in the streets of Bootle , Marsh Lane , Netherton and Crosby .

My Dad also sold ice cream on Formby and
Freshfield Beach .

My Dad sold soft whippy ice cream and oyster shells were a favourite as well as ice cream sandwiches.

Wonderful pics :)

I used to live in 52 Hertford Road back in the 1980's and have many fond many memories of this street.

Hope you don't mind - I've added the street name and date for you in the title of your topic.

Thank you so much for sharing. I've also combined your two posts into this one to keep everything tidy.

Thanks again for sharing your memories here,

Mack :D

Hi, I new the Family who lived in Ash Street who sold ice cream, they lived next to the Mosey Family who live at number 11, I knew them as Brian and Jeet who had 3 daughters.
I think your Dad might have owned the house at one time

Well, you passed that test Ashok. :) :)

Never can be too careful - lots of imposters about.

Remember your dad's van - I've always lived in Netherton with various breaks for college and work.

Always oyster shells for me - cornets were for kids.

The first ice cream van I can remember coming round was George's (late 50s early 60s), who I think , had a shop on Stanley Road by the

Commodore.

Remember my mum ordering an ice cream gateau for Christmas from Mr Ed. Sure that was the name on the van.

The last two recollections may be based on an ice cream van conspiracy theory. :oops: :oops: :D

Hi Ashok.......This is a great post, I remember your father's Van too & he had a calming air about him & seem to make every ice cream sale especially for you.

As Dan prudently asked in a previous quote, what music did he play ?, as I'm sure this will stir the subconscious memory of an entire generation of 'Bucks' ?.

Or are we to assume due to the fact that he sold 'soft whippy ice cream' that he played "Greensleeves"....?

Cheers,

Stay safe.
