A Pair of Onaway Milk Trucks
Submitted by Nute Chapman
From Onaway Outlook October 24, 2014

Caption#1: Jack Petchell's first milk truck. We have information that the year is about 1921. Looking at the license plate we find that it is a 1917 plate. We don't know how many years you kept a plate back then. The driver is Jack Petchell but we do not have the name of the helper. The truck is pointed south on Lynn Street with Warnock's store in the background.
Caption #2: Jack Petchell and his helper. Jack's new milk truck is about a 1923 Chevrolet and is neatly advertising his product. Again the truck is pointing south on Lynn Street. Take note of the rows of milk and cream cans in front of the creamery behind Warnock's.
