Handcart

In the West, we don’t really think of handcarts as vehicles; that’s because we don’t use them any more. But I have an advert for the British company Alldays from around 1905 which shows some of their handcarts as well as their tricycle carrier. 100 years ago, handcarts were a major ‘vehicle’ on western streets.
