On the subject of James Nimmo's Mr Whippy van - there was also the chip van (who's was that?) and another van that sold groceries - I used to buy Bazooka bubble gum there - was it someone called Malcolm? - can anyone remember? It came round Davaar Avenue after school/teatime. There was also a rag and bone man....
