Bill Nelson in a Sleigh
This picture shows a man named Bill Nelson in a sleigh in 1918. There is a white horse and a blackish sleigh, and it seems that it is winter out there. Also, it seems that there is a white house in the background, so maybe that is Bill Nelson's house.
As you can tell, on a regular carriage, there are wooden tires, but on a winter carriage, there are metal runners, so that's why it is called a sleigh. Nowadays we just need winter tires because we have cars. but back then, they would have to get metal runners for the carriage.
