This photo from the Christmas Parade of 1981 is of Mike Moldowan’s chip wagon passing the Bank of Nova Scotia. From the Collection of The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. Tim Campbell The original horse drawn chip wagon was given to the museum and then loaned to the Chamber of Commerce. It was then basically ignored until it was irreparable and I believe it was demolished. A sad ending to a great story.

Chip Trucks We Have Known
I remember Saturday nights, in the mid-fifties, buying chips when the truck was outside the bowling alley. Never could find better chips during my life. The brown paper cone filled with chip ,sprinkled with salt, and the bottom soaked with vinegar.
Thank you 🙂
