EPISODE 8: Hot Rod Wagon

November 22, 2017

Old vehicles are actually very hard to come by in our neck of the woods.  Even tho North West River as a community is 275 years old, we as a people only started having access to vehicles in the late 50’s.  There were and are people who live in our community whom have never had a vehicle license.  The waterways in the region were and still are our transportation avenues.  The reason our community is on a river was to service the fur trade. Following the shoreline into Lake Melville everyone eventually ended up at the Hudson’s Bay Company Post to trade for necessities of life.  Ah the good old days!

Everybody has their quirks but the couple in this episode absolutely wanted this wagon renewed for sentimental reasons.  The couple has several roadworthy vehicles which have been put together but they really love them. To each his own I guess.  We were lucky to find those slick tires when we did.  Four days later the old building we searched thru was demolished.  That old building was part of the Canadian military’s mess hall which was used from the early 40’s into the early 70’s.  We actually found a few other items, old metal devices, etc that we saved from that day.  If it wasn’t for the film crew we would have never been inside that specific building and all those treasures would have been lost forever.
