1954 Dairy Farm Ice Cream Seller

1954 Dairy Farm Ice Cream Seller

Original photo source indicated that the scene was at RAF Kai Tak. The prices of the ice cream can be read.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1954


Wish I could see the price list of ice cream for sale, but I don't know how to blow up the image.

I seem to recall HK50c for a large cup of ice cream. They also carried 'eskimo pies' (choc covered ice cream wrapped in foil).

As far as I can discern (corrections are welcome), the list is: 

Product                                Price (Cents)

1. Ice Cream L. Cup                  50

2, Ice Cream S. Cup                 30

3. Eskimo Pie                            30

4. Choco Frost                          30

5. Milk "I" Frost                       20

6. Beano                                    20

7. Frosty Frost                          10

For magnification, one can either use the zoom feature above or view the original image on  Flickr.


Very much appreciated. Thanks!
