Footnotes

  • These vehicles were used predominately by invalids or elderly people. They were mainly used in private grounds so that people could "take the Air". Usually pulled by a pony, and led by a servant, with another servant walking behind to help, if required. The rear handle was mainly for use in the coachhouse. They were nearly always hooded and some had a tiller steer so that a pony was not required.


    This example has English pattern wheels with rubber, on a steel axle. The body is suspended on "C" springs front and rear and the fifth wheel is steel. Externally it is fitted with a folding hood with hood jacks, which could be lowered in fine weather. There is a side door for easy access and the front closes over the legs of the incumbent and the folding window is attached onto the hood; the window is glass with mahogany framing and is hinged. This can be open or shut depending on the weather.

    The interior is upholstered with blue West of England Cloth, although the seat cushion appears to have no outer covering. This vehicle has been in dry storage for many years is described as in good original condition and would make an interesting addition for a collector.
