Who remembers the POP Man?


Recommended Posts

Who remembers the pop man coming round their street. Did they come in the 50s or was it much later?

Barr’s was on the Dore House estate, by the old Asda. But I think it was only a warehouse, rather than a manufacturing site.

Alpine I remember as a brand, but not sure where from?

Larkspur was also a brand of pop, but did that come from the milkman?

I seem to remember we had Hagues ( owned by the father of a past Tory Party leader!}

Yes in the 50's we had a man come round in a lorry and we would get a stone flagon of Ginger Beer. It held about a gallon and had a cork bung and was returnable...it was delicious, very sharp and gingery so it would burn the back of your throat if you drank it too fast.

I remember exactly that in the '50s. It was at Bower Road, Walkley. We had the flagon of ginger beer as a special treat on occasions . I can't remember my dad buying anything else.
