Prefabs Again - a Memory of Wishaw.

My uncle Tom had the ice-cream van that went round the prefabs. He was married to Famme Marsella - Marsella was name on side of ice-cream van and her parents had a shop quite near Netherton Cross where they made the icecream. Great cones and big wafers known as 'blackmen' not tryin to be rascist but that was what they called them. Great ice-cream with raspberry or tallies blood as it was known at that time!
