It was 1967–a Centennial– Parade Slides from Wendy Healey–Armstrong Family


This was the 1967 celebration parade and they are from the Armstrong family slides. I know the driver of the fire truck is Ken Drummond with his daughter, Heather I believe. Wendy also said some of them were Between the Bank and Dollarama.– Wendy Healey


As they were slides it is tricky for photos now a days– but this was just fantastic and made my day. Thanks Wendy!
