1919 Carlyle Dairy Wagon
The eye-catching white and gold wagons of The Carlyle Dairy Company were a common sight in Calgary between 1909 and 1919. They were popular, too, as they delivered ice cream to eager Calgarians in addition to milk and butter. Horse-drawn wagons were used to deliver dairy products in Alberta throughout the 1940s. Horses eventually got used to the sound of automobiles, but sharing the streets still caused conflict-automobile drivers did not like getting stuck behind a slow-moving horse.
