Sketch No. 21

Description:

Subject : Spoke-wheeled side-car with passenger. The cart/trottle car in this painting shows a design development of the wheel car, with the addition of foot boards along its sides. This transforms it into a passenger vehicle while still retaining the capacity for carrying goods. The angle of the shafts suggests that springs were fitted between the axle and the body of the cart to improve the comfort of the passengers. Note that in the vehicle in the painting the driver is perched above the passengers.
