The name Johnny Onions - Sioni Wynwns in Welsh - was a term of endearment, a nickname, given to any and all of the onion sellers from the Roscoff area of Brittany who came to Wales and most parts of Britain in great numbers during the 20th century.
In particular, Johnny Onions was a familiar sight in most Welsh towns during the 1920s and '30s, a small man in a dark blue beret, pushing along a bicycle heavily laden with strings of onions.
