Edinburgh Evening News
This photo appeared in the ''Post Bag' column of the Evening News.
This column featured old photos sent in by
readers. I don't know the date of the newspaper
that published this photo, but the photo is captioned:
'A Co-op. cart of around 1911'l
The letter beside
the photo in the paper was sent from Wardie Road, Edinburgh. It
"Do any of your readers
regret the demise of the old cart horse, once a common site in our capital
Apart from the
excitement of hanging on to the back of the cart, it was a treat to be
allowed to hold the reins while the horse slaked its thirst at a street
Has anyone else happy
memories of better times?"
