Woman and Horse Carriage
This is a photograph of a woman standing beside her carriage. She is possibly going to church on a Sunday morning because she's dressed in black. The carriage is made out of wood, and the rims of the carriage wheels are made of steel. The time period this picture was taken is 1900.
You cannot buy a carriage today. I think the woman in the picture owns the carriage, but I'm not that sure. This carriage was made in Canada. It was pretty popular to have a carriage back then. Besides going to church, it was also used for going to town, and just for riding around sometimes. It fit into people's daily lives by having to ride in it to go places they needed to go, and run errands they needed to run.
