Waikanae icecream truck Kanawa Street

‘Grandma’s Taxi’
Quite a few years ago, my wife’s Grandma was out shopping in Waikanae. She missed her bus home to the retirement home, so summoned the ice cream vendor who just happened to be trying to sell some 99’s near the bus stop. He kindly allowed her into the passenger seat and took her home. It’s not known how much business he attained from other residents, but he gave her an ice cream too! Here is his van parked across from where we used to live in Waikanae in Kanawa Street. “Well done Mr Kool!” (Wallace Trickett)
