Goat Carts

Washington Rural Heritage librarians recently stumbled upon the genre of photo postcards depicting people (usually children) posed in a small cart, drawn by a unlikely animal (typically a goat). Apparently around the turn of the 20th century into the 1920s, traveling portrait photographers would use a goat cart as a mechanism for soliciting business.
