Carriage Ads

Before automobiles were horse-drawn vehicles. Instead of an engine and a gas tank, the owner had to take care of horses, and horsepower had a literal meaning back then.

You may know Schuman Carriage as a former car dealer. But did you know it started out by selling carriages and horses in 1889 and offered repair services?

Schuman Carriage and other carriage dealers advertised their carriages in Hawaii newspapers at the turn of the 20th century (1900s). View these ads in our Flickr collection:
