1906 ANTIQUE HORSE DRAWN CARRIAGES BUGGY & SLEIGH CAT.Gentle bidders, I could never part with this original, one of a kind antique White, Van Glahn & Co., New York catalog from 1906. It is too unique and wonderful, and I use it continuously as a historic reference. But I thought someone out t might love to have a hard copy of the 22 pages from the antique carriages (and accessories) section, to help you identify, research, or collect. These sleighs, carriages and accessories were offered by "the oldest mail order house in America" at the turn of the century.
I am sorry I cannot offer you my original catalogue pages you see But I am willing to "share" the next best thing, hard copies of the rare information from over a century ago, which you may never find anyw else. I have never seen another of these.
The text tells us this company was located at Chatham Square, New York City (in 1906) at the time this catalog was printed. You will receive the page with that information, too, for provenance.
