We saw this beautiful old carriage outside a local antique shop.
Can you imagine your beau showing up to take you to a church service and picnic? I think they must have used some sort of step stool to get in and out..or maybe that was the part the handsome beau took care of…grabbing a gal around the waist and swinging her up into the seat…people were shorter back then…he must be muscular…but then he probably worked hard on the farm or in the woods. I wonder how many petticoats she wore under her long dress…was it hot? I bet she wore a pair of white gloves and clutched a picnic basket on her lap. As they ride along some curls escape from her beribboned hat as she giggles at something he says.
