| The Best Books......Hard To Find Collectibles......and other Wares!
Do you love horse drawn carriages want to get ideas about building, painting and carriage hardware?
Unfortunately, when carriage factories closed their doors; and when the more than 40 carriage trade associations disbanded; when the technical schools for the craft ceased to exist; their literature was dispersed, destroyed, and forgotten.
For all practical purposes, the manufacture of carriages is a vanished craft.
