This is a page out of John Davison's ledger book. He was a manufacturer (creator) of sleighs and carraiages. The sleigh named here is a Lo Sleigh, I believe. It cost $40.00. That sounds pretty cheap compared to what a sleigh would cost now. A sleigh now would probably cost over a thousand dollars. They have really gone up in price.
This photo shows the Ewan Matthews group. It consists of three people and a large horse. The horse is pulling a sleigh. The purpose might be so the horse can bring the people to their destination.
Sleighs were used to transport people and goods in the wintertime. They were more common in the late 1800's to the early 1900's. Probably every family had a sleigh on P.E.I back then. In my picture, it was Ewan Matthews and his buddies.
