This reminds me of those days, in 1953 when honey bucket wagons, pulled by horses or cows, crossed the Oshau Bridge over the Hirose River and there were no automobiles on the whole bridge. Honey bucket wagons carried human waste to fertilize fields of rice.

belle calèche, dommage que l'on en voir plus sur Paris. Voila une manière écologique d'aller au travail

Beautiful carriage, a shame that we see in Paris. Here is an environmentally sound way to get to work

We have them in Belgium too... albeit a bit bigger and for tourists only.

This photo has a romantic quality, I suppose its something about a horse and carraige.
