I remember going there that was our treat on a Saturday after shopping on Ladypool road. The ice cream had little bits of ice in them.

Hi Bode

Yes it would have been Burdens on the corner of Ladypool Rd and Oldfield rd, they were there for a great many years. I'm not certain of this but I think they eventually moved the manufacturing of ice cream to Alfred St and sold direct to the public from a section of Trippas Bakery Shop on the corner of St Paul's Rd.

Burdens ice cream was the best ever and as Dave's said type in the search 'Burdens' and I'm sure you'll find more info.

Burdens ice cream was to die for, it had a taste all of it's own. It was worth the trudge up and down 'The Lane' with mom just to have one of these. also Westwood's the greengrocer with all the fruit and veg on the front around the corner. And was it 'Lads' the TV and electrical shop. fond memories

In the 1930's my husband's mother was the cleaner for Westwoods and when my husband was born in 1934 he was called after their son - Cyril!
