Letterpres handbill with a woodcut showing a large covered wagon on wide rollers rather than wheels, being pulled by a team of eight horses. The handbill extols the virtues of rolling wagons, namely that they can be used to transport heavy loads without damaging the road surface, particularly in wet conditions. It concludes by naming James Sharp of Leadenhall Street, London, as a supplier of rolling carts and wagons.
