News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

The strawberry milk was brilliant and you could jump on the empty pack and make one hell of a bang  :)

I had a memory come to me of a machine outside Cooks hardware shop on the Delce. It dispensed milk, strawberry milk and frozen orange pyramid shaped cartons. Was it sixpence ? I think so. I know if one hendled it a tad on the rough side it would errrm over dispense :)
I then started to wonder about the chewing gum machines also, I think a lot of them were franchised and the owner would go around collecting his money and re stocking, cant imagine how they made a profit from them.
