But ice cream trucks are indeed a dying breed in many places. In the1960s 30,000 ice cream trucks plied their trade from Eastbourne to Edinburgh in the UK. But today, just 5,000 ice cream vans remain on British roads. Where do the old trucks go to die? One of their final resting places is an ice cream van “graveyard” in the quiet seaside village of St Leonards in East Sussex, England.
Olivia Howitt has done an interesting piece on the vans for BBC travel.
