From a time when green-grocers sold from a van.
Yes, can clearly remember the dark red electric Coop greengrocery van coming around our estate once a week. Then there was some enterprising bod who converted a large removal van to a mobile grocery shop and the other one I remember was with the Pink Paraffin van or the Blue Esso Paraffin van, with the large fuel tank in the back of usually a Bedford Dormobile and he filled your fuel can from either a gallon or half gallon brass "jug", which he filled from the tank.
Yet, nobody seemed concerned about people smoking in the vicinity.
