2 pointsMy Dad John Reed was born in December 1928 and was brought up on Stead Lane. He has a copy of the photograph and identifies the motorcycle rider as Alan Walker and the ice cream seller as Billy Bell.
1 pointI remember the ice cream man, he came round the oval area as well as Stead lane early fifties and into the sixties. His second name was Bell but we always refered to him as Jack Bell but his name may well have been Billy Bell. He had a white ice cream cart and it was pulled by the horse. I remember reading somewhere, not sure if was on this thread that he came from Camboise but I always thought he was from Bebside but again I could be wrong.
