In the 1800’s, peddlers would travel from farm to farm using person- or animal-drawn carts to supply isolated populations with basic goods such as pots and pans, tools, and cloth. For many of those farms, the closest community could be more than a day’s travel making the peddler a vital part of life.
I found this restored peddler’s cart at King’s Landing, New Brunswick, the historical settlement I mentioned in an earlier post . In the background is the Sash and Door Factory where I found the windows in last week’s post.
