Here are three supplied to me by Rollo Dickson, who edits a railway magazine in South Africa.
I had expected that much of the culture which has been shown in UK, North America and Australia in this thread would have been evident there.
Of the six vehicles shown, five are delivery vehicles rather than vendor-vehicles as such (as have been some of the posts to the thread), but they are still interesting and match models seen in Australia.
A new use is added with the mobile post office.
Identifications will be welcome for those which are not labelled.

Again, this isn't a vendor van, it is a delivery vehicle (mail and passengers).
Isisford (Qld), in 1910.

Same bakery, about 1925. Great Uncle Claude off doing his bread delivery on his one horsepower cart. The horses used to graze on the slopes of Mt Eden, across the road from the bakery.

This vendor caravan was at a NZ rally, and I have cropped it from a tractor photo just posted to the tractor section. The rally was a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Glenbrook Vintage Railway, and equipment from lots of kindred technical hobbies was assembled.

I found this one while searching for something else. I think that it is icecream, from cool containers.

This is out in the canefields of Olean Mill, eastern Java (Indonesia). There are lots of field workers, making it the the time of a vendor to pedal out.

I don't mean to hijack this post but BK did you use to set up on the hill opposite
Denmac Ford at Darra. I use to stop at a pie cart there heaps of times I can still
taste the sausage rolls cut down the middle and heaped with mushy peas and
coated with Worcester sauce.Some others I can think of were on Fairfield road
near the N.S.W.Railways engine sheds, Southpine road near Pickering street Enoggera, and I think his name was Joe near Hoepners Transport at Bundamba.
