Sepia Saturday 2

October is running away from me, so I had better get on with my transport shots. More from the family album.

This time I am looking at human powered wheels of various kinds.

From Two Wheelers
These dapper young men belonged to a German youth club in Adelaide in the 1890s.

And my uncle (far right) and friends with their decorated Billy Cart taken around 1916

To Three Wheelers - taken about 1940.  His first trike.

And this elegant lady in her Invalid carriage, dating back to the 1870s, I think.

To Four Wheelers  -  my daughters and their baby carriages  around 1967

And one of the girls in a cart with her pet Dingo - Ginger. He was a beautiful dog, sadly stolen one night. Taken in Darwin in 1965.

And these delightful children's carriages are not from my collection, but I could not resist them.

  1. These photos are truly treasures! Love the ones of your daughters!

  2. Really interesting and fun photos!

  3. What a delightful collection of photographs, but how dreadful l that the family's pet dog was stolen.
