1902 American Buggy

The Collection’s exhibit

American vehicles had much in common with British and European types, but did develop an independant national identity. The American Buggy was often used in towns but was originally designed for rural areas and wide open spaces so were light, strong, and tended to have wheels of equal (or near equal) size. The ‘one horse, four wheels’ type tended to often be driven by the owner.

This vehicle was driven by Colonel Frank by means of a fast pony.
