Image of 1973.426 - c. 1890 Four Passenger Park Phaeton.  Could be called a Basket Phaeton, as it is wicker.  Has a fringed parasol top, beige-colored upholstery.  An unusual and rare carriage, since this type of summer vehicle did not usually receive the care that a Brougham or Victoria did, as they were used under different conditions and roads.

Image of 1973.427 - c. 1890 Governess' Cart.  Because of its wicker body and four wheels, this small vehicle is rare.  A governess' cart usually has two wheels.  Thus, if the horse pulling the cart were to rear, the passengers could be thrown out.  This vehicle is designed so that such an accident cannot happen.  The cart is used to transport children to school and on outings, and is driven by a governess.  Children would occasionally use it for driving ponies.
