For display only? Not really … this fabulously restored old ice cream van is used by O’Brien’s to promote and sell ice cream at shows and fairs. Seen here at Belvedere House during a recent home and garden exhibition.

Much of the attraction of this van comes from the muted colour scheme, a contrast to modern, day-glo, cartoon-character-bedecked vans that stalk kids in estates like clowns do in Derry (Maine). The only concession to modernity is the Dublin skyline (well, sort of) at the rear. Which somehow does not fit in.
