Avanti - We All Scream For Ice Cream Birthday Card
Nothing beats the excitement of hearing the ice cream truck coming down the street. As far back as the 1860's, throughout America, vendors sold frozen concoctions out of wagons and carts affixed with bells. In 1920, confectioner Harry Burt introduced a chocolate-coated ice cream bar served on a flat wooden stick. He took his invention to the streets of Youngstown, Ohio, with the nation's first fleet of automotive ice cream trucks. By the 1950's, there were 2,000 on the road, each driven by a friendly Good Humor Man who wore a classic white uniform and black bow tie, and tipped his hat to ladies as he passed.
