Horse and Buggy, southern Alberta, 1905

Horse and Buggy, southern Alberta, 1905
Bleed under mat

Artist: John Crittenden


A typical horse and buggy heading back home on a snowy, prairie afternoon in 1905. Reference was supplied by the Toronto Metropolitan Central Library.

There were many different buggies and wagons used in Canada in the early days. Some were made here and others were imported. They were in common use in the towns and cities and rural countryside. I can remember driving to town with my granddad, from our farm in southern Manitoba, to Melita in a horse and buggy with hot rocks on the floor and wrapped in blankets to keep warm. When the snow became too deep a sleigh or cutter was usually used and the buggy was put away until spring. - John Crittenden
