Re: A busy time at the team track Chicago 1934

Horses were still around the Detroit area until, maybe, 1950-51. Not at all common, but still around. The ones I remember were pulling small vendor wagons making local deliveries of produce, milk, ice, etc. I can’t remember exactly … I was only a few years old then, but I remember them clomping along the street. Always attracted the kids, something just a bit unusal. Such wagons were far outnumbered by assorted small trucks.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I also remember, in the same time frame, lots of chain-drive trucks and solid-rubber-tires (on metal or wood spoked wheels). Big “AC” Macks and others. Again, not the norm, but very much still around.
