There was a time when horses ruled the street. Lashed to carts and trained to drag them around. I came across this historic photo recently. I am not sure how far it dates back. Maybe to the very early years of photography. The hand coloring is amazing. You’d think this was a modern photograph.
Back when it was taken, photography was modern. Advanced. State of the art. This gives us insight into times long gone.
I can only see a small portion of the streetscape but I think this was taken in Frenchtown or maybe somewhere else. I wonder if this guy was in town for some coffee. Did they have take out back then?
