Charlottetown Sleighing Club
This artifact shows the Charlottetown Sleighing Club, for people who liked sleighing back in the 19th century. Sleighs were used because people liked sleighing for entertainment, transportation, and racing in the winter.
This picture was printed sometime in the 1840's, when the sleighing club was running in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The people driving were just ordinary people who had sleighs and liked using them. People probably used the Sleighing Club to see different sleighs and meet new people. The sleighs were made of wood and/or metal. There really isn't anything odd or different in this picture, but the horses do look a little thin.
