For many years some of the finest craftsmen throughout North America laboured in factories large and small to produce carriages and sleighs. This book celebrates their skills and artistry.
This full-colour book presents the full range of vehicles they produced: carts, carriages, sleighs, buggies and slovens -- from the very grand opera bus to the functional ox wagon. The text looks at design developments, the variety of usage and technological details.
This book draws on one of the finest collections of horse-drawn vehicles in North America, at New Brunswick's Kings Landing Settlement near Fredericton, with photographs were taken on site with animators in period costume and horses harnessed. It shows how the carriage-making industry in New Brunswick developed over time, relative to the development of roads.
