Hitch up your favorite horse and go tailgating!

Standard

by Mark Bergmann

Tailgating is popular every time the pigskin flies, but don’t think tailgating is a recent development. This 1890s horse-drawn carriage was used to go watch football games at Princeton.IMG_8579

If I was a carriage salesman, I would tell you to notice the extra high seats, so you could look over the crowd at the game. I would walk you to the back of the carriage to show you the extra large storage for all of your favorite food and beverages. Just strap on your corn hole boards, and go tailgating!
(This turn of the century carriage is just one of many modes of transportation on display at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont.)
