Used to do the (very occasional ) delivery in Silvertown in the early/mid 90s. It really was like riding onto the set of Mad Max.

BTW, you can still get Wright's Coal Tar soap, stinks like Silvertown once did but good for psoriasis.

You can get it in Tesco.

I used to LOVE those old skool vending machines. If those 4 were lined up in front of me, I’d still be staring at them after 20 minutes. I’d probably go whole nut in the end.

Remember the old chewing gum machines? After a certain number coming out, 5?, 10?, you'd get a free one come out, as well.
