Wonderful shots, the wagon is a great find!

Kate said...

Oh, this reminds me of my beloved Santa Fe where wagons sometimes are used for props outside of businesses. The best are those that are outside of churches on the High Road to Taos between that city and Santa Fe. Great shots!

It's nice to see an old wagon in retirement and enjoying carefree days!

Can you imagine traveling a couple of thousand miles in one of these things? Or two miles? Covered in snow?

Nice find, EG!

Carletta said...

It's been a couple of different colors it would seem.
I like it's weathered wood and peeling paint but wonder how long it can go on out in your winters.
Nice shot!

Ann said...

imaging them breaking in the wild west.

Aren't you glad these folks are in any hurry to get rid of these artifacts? - so cool!

All you need is to hitch up the pony and away you go!

Powinie być gdzieś schowany pod dach, aby nie niszczył się bardziej. Ciekawe zdjęcie. Pozdrawiam.
Should preferably be somewhere hidden under the roof, so as not to destroy more. Interesting picture. Yours.

Is that a little snow too, or just the sun having fun?

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Wasn't this called a buckboard. Well, at least it was in cowboy movies. A cool thing to have in the yard. Reminds us of yesteryear.

Nice piece of yard art.

I don't know what a "top shot" is, but I thought it might have to do with fashion...

Karen said...

What a nice little piece of history. Great shots EG!

Love shots like these, we seldom see old wagons here, your photo will preserve it long after it is gone also.

Very nice. I think old wagons have so much character to them.

These are great shots. Can you imagine what it must have been like to load your entire life into one of these and then head out to places unknown on roads that may have been barely passable?
