Milk Wagon 1929

Milk Wagon 1929

This milk wagon was manufactured by the John Guedehofer Wagon Company of Indianapolis, Indiana. A milk wagon similar to this one was used at the Plains Dairy in Cheyenne. The Plains Dairy was owned by Christian Christensen and his family. It began on a homestead northeast of Cheyenne. The dairy operation was moved to the city of Cheyenne in 1929 and continued operation until 1969 when it was sold to Dairy Gold. The body of this particular vehicle came from Waverly, Iowa and it was restored and painted similar to the turn-of-the-century milk wagon it represents. The Cheyenne Frontier Days owns this wagon and each year it is rolled in the Cheyenne Frontier Days parade.
