Physical DescriptionHorse-drawn vehicle, full size, hooded Whitechapel buggy, timber/leather, made by Arthur Wynne, coachbuilder, Wilson Street, Horsham, Victoria, Australia, 1914-1924
This small, four-wheel, horse-drawn buggy carried a driver and passenger on a single seat. It is constructed of strong and resilient timbers such as hickory. The hooded body is mounted on semi-elliptical leaf springs attached to the sides of the undercarriage. All this is supported on thin, 'spider' spoked wheels with Sarven patent cast iron hubs. The addition of steps on both sides indicates that the vehicle was used by a woman driver. There is a lockable boot at the rear. There is provision for one or two horses via a pole and a pair of shafts. All fittings are nickel silver, upholstered in leather with new patent leather fittings.
