Ernie Atherton - Warrington ice cream man

Recommended Posts

I wonder how many miles he rode in a day and how many he sold.  I'd imagine everyone really looked forward to him going down their street and he probably got to know most people on his routes too.  Nice that 😁

I remember, as a nipper, a person who rode one of these around the bewsey area. Don't know if it was the same guy but might well have been. As a young sprog used to pay attention to the hand bell and the call of "ice cream lollyice, lollyice ice cream" more than the person selling the treat.

Oddly enough mrs sid has a nephew who runs a similar business in padstow,  "treats on trikes", he has a website and caters for parties, corporate events weddings and the like and when not doing that will set up on penquaen quarry on the camel trail in cornwall, he also has a trike with a hot drinks set up as well.

Probably as it is written on side of his trike by the look of it.🤭

Could only see first two letters - may have been a different company in the days before I was born ;)

I cheated and used a magnifying glass, that way you can make out at least four letters.

He always used to remind me of aurther askey, sounded a bit like him as well.
