Woodville made Express Wagon had versatile uses

Salmon Express Wagon

This brightly coloured low, four-wheeled wagon with an open rectangular body like a flat box was had a number of uses in horse and carriage days.

Known as a very versatile carriage, this express wagon was suitable for seated passengers travelling, or when the seats were removed, it was very adequate for carrying any of the early settlers’ needs or stores.  It was often harnessed with one horse or with a pole and two horses abreast.

It was built by Horne and Co of Woodville and restored to its present condition by local man John Salmon. It was purchased from Mr Salmon by the Museum in 2018 thanks to generous donations from Friends of the Museum.
