Guess who?

"They're lovely! They're nice! Plain or choc!"

If you recognise these words from days gone by you will know who I'm talking about.

I don't recognise the words but it sounds like a 'Digestive' biscuit.

It was a walking ice cream salesman operating on Hastings beach in the 1960's. He used to carry a large white box (presumably insulated) and would spend hours on a sunny day shouting those words to attract custom. I've no idea if he was employed by someone or running his own business. We used to see him east of the pier, but I'm not sure how big his patch was. I just wondered if anyone else remembered him.

I remember him well. As someone said, particularly on the east side of the pier. It would have been in the 50's about the same time as Biddy and his barrel, which I believe has already been covered elsewhere..
