Good Humor Man

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 5 October 2016 in People & Portrait.

WHen I was a child, every summer we would listen for the bell of the Good Humor Ice Cream truck in or neighborhood. The man who drove the truck was dressed like this. Good memories.

Very pleasant story, Ruthie !
When I was a child, me too, I waited for the Citroën 2CV of the ice seller, yellow painted ; the man or the woman called the young customers with a horn (pouèt, pouèt...).
Great memories...

I bought ices at a immobile store. In winter, stone-roasted sweet potato seller came with the sound of horn (not bell). It was a long time ago, I don't see them recently.

Where I grew up, the ice cream company was Penguin, so we always waited for the Penguin Man, who was dressed like this guy above. But one only lived one year in the city, then back to the farm.

Every summer we would leave the city for the country and we would be enjoying the the ice cream man coming by. Don't remember what he wore. It was music to our ears.
Thanks for the memories !
