Did anyone know there used to be a potato chip factory at the base of Mt Coot-tha?
I didn't either until I read this sign while passing by on the weekend.
The main brand made by Freer's was Red Seal chips.
I found quite a decent history of Freer's founder Gerard James Freer written on a random blog, and there's a Facebook fan page for Freer's Red Seal chips.
But there seems to be very little else to be found, about what was probably a beloved part of Brisbane's history.
(How could it not be beloved. It's chips.)
I thought about chips for a good chunk of my run after this. I think I'll put them on my nutrition plan for GNW100.
