For this Sepia Saturday Suggestion there is a photograph of some new (at the time) automobiles loaded up on rail road flat cars. They're headed presumably, to the waiting new car dealers all poised with a manager sale, a Mother's Day sale, an inventory clearance sale, a door-buster sale or any one of their myriad gimmicks to entice customers to their lot.
I think LOST GALLERY only has a couple of photographs of double transportation, (one mode carrying another) so after we present those, let's go on and see just how many different modes of transportation we can find.
Here then for Sepia Saturday, today, are two photographs of automobiles on a ferry boat.
Now that's out of the way let's see what else we can find.
Starting off with Mules and Donkeys. Do you know the difference? Basically they are not genetically related at all, yet belong to the same family of animals. (I know, confusing isn't it?) Outwardly, the donkey is almost always smaller than a mule.
So here we have one of each (I think).
Here's horse-back, horse-and-buggy, horse-and-wagon and horse-and-cart.
There is also the Brougham, the Buckboard, the Cabriolet and Charabanc. You remember the Covered Wagon, the Hansom Cab, the Sulky and the Surrey. And let’s not forget to mention the vehicle of choice in every Hollywood Western movie, the Stage Coach.
And there were many other names for horse powered vehicles.
The LOST GALLERY has an extensive collection of abandoned photographs of aircraft. If you are interested in that sort of thing, see the index at the bottom of the page.
For our Sepia Saturday transportation exhibition we'll just present two of the most graceful.
The P-38 Lightning and the lovely Lockheed Constellation.
I almost forgot, there is quite a variety of craft for water travel: rowboats and rafts, canoes and cabin cruisers.
And finally, we can't leave out the most whimsical of all,
The Flying Saucer.
Here Gort stomps down the gang plank to terrorize Washington DC with his tank melting gaze.
Come to think of it, Gort might be of some help fixing Washington today.
So now let's start up, mount up, rev up and wind up back at the Sepia Saturday home page and find out what today's suggestion is REALLY about.
Or maybe you'd prefer just a list of all (well, most) of the categories and subjects and album pages
