I’m calling this conveyance a cart but in reality it looks a bit like a small carriage. There’s probably a name for it but for our purposes, I’m calling a red cart. The red cart is being pulled by a healthy-looking black horse. It seems as if the cart has lost it’s rider and the horse has decided to continue to their destination alone. Or perhaps, our equine friend is getting impatient and stamping his foot while waiting for his owner to return.
Whether you call this a carriage or a cart, I think this colorized, vintage drawing is quite charming. Please do let me know if you find a use for it – I would love to share your with everyone else who visits my site.
Carll B. Williams (d.1928) would most likely be shocked that his horse and cart drawing from 1907 is still being discussed all these years later. It is one of a number of charming illustrations from Billy Whisker’s Travels which can be found on Reusable Art.
