Maybe this was that sulky that took them to town. This one is driven by my grandfather (Mum's dad) while he was still young in the 1920's. He raised mum after her mother died when she was four. For us kids he was a wonderful grandfather and we spent much time with him till he died in 1962. This man was a stoic with none of the fizz and lame of people his wife came from. They were music and laughter and sparkle. He was solid with a dry humour and a great love for his young wife. He never remarried and Mum was his life.
