"Frankly, my dear...."
I have another movie reference for you all today. This time I can say that I not only have seen it, but it's one of my all-time favorites and the book is a favorite too! Because carriages were the predecessors of cars, this amazing collection has a few of them on display. This is my favorite carriage!! It appeared in the movie "Gone with the Wind" starring Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh! In coming days I'll show you a few of the very first cars, which were basically carriages with engines put into them.
Circa 1885 Skeleton Boot Victoria
Manufacturer: Studebaker Brothers of Chicago, Illinois
In the first picture, taken a couple of weeks ago, you can see my boys with the carriage. The photo below shows them when we first saw this collection, 2 years ago...boy, haven't they grown!!
