The best way of transport in early Charleville

Western Times - - NEWS -

THE story of early Charleville is pep­pered with the in­clu­sion of goats which were used in transport of peo­ple and life’s ne­ces­si­ties. This young lad shows a beau­ti­ful ac­tion of four goats-in-hand har­nessed to a small cart.

He is seated on a 2x4 gal­lon petrol con­tainer made of pine.

The un­der-cart would have been cast iron wheels of about 15 inch and 18 inch di­am­e­ter on a rigid axle.
