Born to Be Wild in Carleton Place — The Wild Ones


Johnny Racine posted this “video drive” through Carleton Place and surrounding area yesterday on The Carleton Place Social Scene. It is worth your undivided attention for the whole 5 minutes. It got me thinking of our Marlon Brando’s of Carleton Place from days gone by. Jennifer Fenwick Irwin who is busy setting up a spectacular  selection of things to buy at the Junk and Disorderly Sale Saturday and Sunday at The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum gave up some of her time to find these photos. Thank you Jennifer!

Driver unknown, but she said he could possibly be an Armstrong

“Easy Rider” was never a motorcycle movie to me. A lot of it was about politically what was going on in the country.

Whatever happened was sadly left in the wind years ago.
