Delicate

The steering, suspension and wheels of this 1902 Rambler are obviously quite delicate, especially when compared to those of the sturdy Kissels which first appeared only four years later.  The kerosine lantern, on the other hand, appears more than capable of withstanding the bugs, mud and small stones kicked up by other carriages of the time, both horse-drawn and horseless.

  2. Hi Lois,
    It does look delicate. Makes you wonder how they kept them running. Have a great day!
