Just spotted this Sweetmeats vendor (together with another very early vendor behind it) sited at Victoria Station circa 1920s: https://rbkclocalstudies.wordpress.com/tag/f-h-warren/

What were you doing back in the 1920s?

That must have been an airtight "Derry & Toms" display case, otherwise the soot and coal smoke of the "great days of steam" would have made a mockery of that display of mostly fabric items. SkEpTiCaL

Great picture PM, just wondering if there are any vintage pictures of the Nestles 1d chocolate vendor in a railway station/ shop front?

Recently acquired a Nestles 1d chocolate wrapper, the wrapper dates from 1932, on the back of the wrapper is the closing date of a competition 30th June 1932 !!.

There is even a picture card inside the wrapper that you would collect for the competition.

Considering the wrapper is 86 years old, it still looks in very good condition.

2 photos of a not very interesting Mackintosh's Toffee vendor for most people ,but interesting to me, I worked in this shop in Tooting for a staggering 50 years (1965-2015) . The photo is dated 1929, the older man standing by the shops dog in photo 2 is my grandfather,the other man is my fathers eldest brother :lol:

In answer to Alan's question as to picture of Nestle aluminium wall machine, I have never seen one. However with regards to the competition, I illustrate details of the prizes offered for a completed album of 156 cards. Given that exchanges required 6 to 1 with a maximum of 4 for 24 on each request a small boy would have to eat an amount of chocolate equal to a large percentage of their own bodyweight!
