  • I remember Alf’s stall. I was only a kid but watching Alf’s patter as he sold his stuff out of the back of an ex-Army truck was entertainment indeed, whether or not you were buying. I remember people used to jostle to get to the front and closer to the ‘bargains’! You have to remember that the UK hadn’t long been off rationing so people were desperate for luxuries. Also ITV had only recently started up showing US TV shows which showed plentiful goods in American homes. UK folk desperately wanted the same thing.
