I’m wondering if you have ever seen or come across some old photos of Hanks tire/dowdalls?Excellent question.. Who has memories and better yet???

Jo-Anne Dowdall-BrownIt was on Hwy 7 beside Twin Oaks. it was a Supertest. My parents Bill and Deanne owned it from 1965 to 2000. In the later years it was Dowdall’s Tire and Service.

Sandra SandersonJo-Anne Dowdall-Brown…wonderful memories at Dowdall’s. Remember the restaurant – even when I go into Hank’s now, I can see the two of us sitting at “our table” in the far corner having our tomato soup and buttered bread feeling so grown up.

Bev HynesDad and I would leave work at Parkman and Taylor and have lunch at Dowdalls. Hot roast beef with gravy on fries! The best! That when Joanne’s grandma and Mom were cooking.

Jordan Monfilsi has always been curious about that place from days passed. It holds a place in my heart. I wouldn’t be who I am today without it. Spent 1/3 of my life there. Or more even,

Jo-Anne Dowdall-BrownJordan Monfils that is wonderful!! We had many employees go through there but many stayed a very long time. Like Justin McNeely’s Dad!!

Phil Hallahanwasn’t that Tim’s garage back in the day?

Dawn JonesI remember the little snack bar at the garage. My brother Jack worked for the Dowdall’s Tire and Service for years in Carleton Place and then Arnprior. ♥

Donna McfarlaneDiane made the best club sandwiches and they were only a dollar to start then one twenty five

Ray PaquetteI can’t remember the Supertest or snack bar but Dowdall Tire was my repair shop for many years when I lived in Carleton Place. I spent the odd hour sitting in the waiting room of what would have been the snack bar talking with Deanne who I had known since childhood.
