Context: How Did People Travel in PEI in 1900?
Some types of transportation that people used on PEI in the late 1800's and early 1900's were horses and buggies, carriages, sleighs, trains, ice boats, horses, walking on foot, and bicycles. Some methods of transportation, like ice boats and sleighs, were only used in the winter. Others, like horses and buggies, bicycles and carriages, were only used in the summer. Still others were used in both winter and summer, such as trains and horses.
Walking and bicycles were usually used to go short distances. For longer distances, people used horses and buggies, trains, and ice boats. To get to the mainland, transportation methods included horses and buggies, carriages, sleighs, boats, ice boats, and later, ferries. Trains and ice boats were newer forms of transportation, as were bicycles. They became popular because they were faster and easier ways to travel. Cars were also new early in the 20th century, but were mostly banned on PEI till much later.
