I don't know what date this pic was taken but it takes me back to visits to the park, egg rolling at Easter...hot afternoons & cold icecreams from the man on his modified cycle with its cold store, keep off the grass, or else rule. Those were the days !

Ice cream tasted different then ,
Especially when you’ve nowt ,
Wigan Park meant more to me ,
as a child exploring bout ,
Vimto had a smell to it ,
that now it seems has gone ,
but at least I’ve got my memories still ,
and they are more than one ...

Vimto ! Can you still buy Vimto ? I was very partial to it & Dandelion & Burdock. As I said, those were the days my friend.
