Curricle, mid 19th century.

Description

Curricles were light, two-wheeled vehicles, which were normally drawn by a pair of horses abreast. They were popular with fashionable gentlemen for travelling around town, but because their design made them easy on the horses, curricles were sometimes used for longer journeys as well. They were the the only English two-wheeled carriages built to be pulled by a pair of horses, and were to some extent superseded in the early 19th century by the one-horse cabriolet, a design imported from France.
