Long Description:
Creamery Truck is one of the smaller murals in Vernon. Its size does not diminish the workmanship and creativity of the artists. It shows the Okanagan Valley Co-Operative Creamery Assn. logo on the truck.

After the creamery moved from Armstrong, area dairymen shipped their milk to Vernon or Salmon Arm. It was a matter of staying in business.

All the murals are well done paying tribute to the artist's talent and creativity for any passersby to enjoy.

The murals are numbered and we will showcase
# 9 – Creamery Truck

Creamery Truck

3111 Coldstream Avenue

H.W. Knight opened the Vernon Creamery in 1920. He already owned the building, so all he needed was the equipment for the production of butter. The truck was a common sight on the rural roads of Vernon.

From the Creamery Truck

The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.

The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.
