Drays are the strongest type of commercial wagon freight carriers pulled by a team of draft animals. Generally they were used in and around the “big” city to haul heavy loads well into the 1920’s and beyond competing competitively with automotive trucks for many years. Floors were usually flat with smallish wheels thereby being lower to the ground than other types of wagons for easy loading
