Oatcakes and pikelets

In reply to P King, Thursday's Star, I lived on the Parson Cross Estate in the '50s, and yes I remember the pikelet man very well around that time.

He always wore a trilby hat and rode a bike with a basket on front.

The familiar shout of “oatcakes and pikelets”, rang out on most weekends.

There were many street traders in those days.
