"Are You Ready Yet?* Four Passenger Pleasure Buggy With Velvet Seats by 


You can just see and hear the head of the household with his best pair of horses all brushed and gleaming in the sun and hitched to this wagon ready to go to town Can’t you hear the words “Are you ready yet?” which would have been favorites back then already for the passengers making the trip with the driver. The green velvet seats were a luxury for a more well to do family. Built in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s many of these carriages are today’s works of art. This one would have taken a family to church on a Sunday or a ride-a-bout on other days. Plush green velvet seats were a highlight as seen in this shot. Taken by Highway 14. west of South Cooking Lake, Alberta

    Just amazing detail in the carriage, has it been reworked at all…

  • I appreciate your comment Larry. This carriage must have arrived after Al Oeming Auctions posted their write ups on the carriages, so I do not have an answer for you. :>)) Leslie
