Life Size Ice Cream Man
salvaged from a South Coast amusement park a decade ago. Originally produced as a promotional item with the launch of Walls Cornetto Ice Cream - he is based on the Venetian Policeman in the TV and Cinema adverts who would sing `Just One Cornetto` to the famous opera song `O Sole Mio`.
Originally this was constructed as an elaborate bin with a vacuum device inside that would suck in the Cornetto wrapper through a hole in his hand to fill a bin in the base. He would then sing `Just One Cornetto` as a thank-you for keeping the amusement park clean and tidy. A unique piece of advertising memorabilia - no other known example exists.
