Object Name:
Top Buggy
Description:
The American buggy, whose general design evolved from an earlier pleasure wagon, became one of the most popular carriages of all time. It was a most ubiquitous vehicle, popular in both town and country for shopping, business and pleasure riding.

This style of buggy is often called a Doctors Buggy with its folding top and single seat. This buggy is unusual in that it has a tan folding top and tan upholstered seat. It is painted green with red wheels. By 1916, the year in which the automobile production finally surpassed wagon production, buggies were actually competing with the auto by advertising features as electric lamps and an "automobile top or auto top."
This Model EXTRA A buggy was manufactured by the L. Burg Carriage Company, in Dallas City, Illinois.
