Description

Model (scale 1:6). This type of cart was originally built to carry fish and other goods along the narrow streets of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, during the reign of Henry VIII. It resembled a two-wheeled wheelbarrow, and was long, narrow, and low and did not have springs. The Yarmouth Coach, a similar vehicle, had two seats over the back axle and was decorated with bright colours. This was used until the beginning of the 19th century for pleasure purposes.
