Article caption: "Drawing Power Here:"
"Where there's ice cream or a pony, you can depend on a crowd of kids, and the combination is irresistible. The Welsh pony, Ginger, enjoys the attention and driver Richard Lawler is kept busy dishing out the cold stuff. Old timers can't recall when they saw the last ice cream wagon hauled by a pony over Portland streets."
