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

I can't help with the ice cream man, but the vehicle is a Reliant Regent. There's some photos here including one in 'Sheps' livery

  Can anyone remember the ice cream man who sold from a green van similar to this, don't know how far he travelled but he did the White Rd Estate in the early 50s. Can't recall if his seat swung round to serve customers, but memory's telling me his wife may have served from a sitting position.
