Classic Ice Cream Truck: The Sound and the Look
Before technology was developed to play electronic recordings from the vehicles, ice cream vendors used a music box and real bells.
The bells each had a slightly different sound. Each vendor plays a unique, tantalizing call to potential customers.

Classic Ice Cream History
Ice cream trucks are nearly as old as trucks. Early in the 20th century, independent entrepreneurs would drive around with cabinets or tubs on the back of their vehicle to keep their product frozen as long as possible by using dry ice.
When most people think of classic ice cream trucks they are envisioning the refrigerated trucks that were so popular in the 1950s.
Classic: The Good Humor Man
A creative business man named Harry Burt perfected ice cream bars on a stick which were given the name Good Humor Ice Cream Bars.
It was in 1920, before ice cream trucks were common, Harry Burt created his marketing plan to sell his product through a fleet of uniform trucks. He believed in emulating the tactics of “old-time street vendors” and is credited with the idea of each truck having bells to attract customers and having uniformed drivers.
The “Good Humor Man” is considered the classic ice cream man that is burned into our collective memory.
