More Carts

There were a couple of photos posted not long ago showing a much more "modern" cart, however, this cart was a true treasure. Home made is always best! And what a great way to keep little ones in one place for a long walk. I am assuming Mother walked from the little house up to Grandma and Grandpa's house. Is that correct? Some of the fun things about this photo are the fact Grandpa made the cart, wheels and all, the great view of the hills in the background, a familiar gate, and is that a garden growing along the path. The cart Grandpa made in later years was patterned after this one.

Love this picture. Louise and Dwight were just babies. Where are the trees that grew along the south side of the lawn? And, surely, that is a garden, where later was lawn. These old pictures are real treasures.

Carts were helpful in so many ways. I still prefer one over a wheelbarrow.
This picture is just classic in so many ways.
