  1. Really nice photo, Stashu! I'm surprised that it looks more like a milk delivery wagon that a beer wagon, which would usually have been an open body stacked with kegs and cases. Maybe more oriented for the home-trade market, i.e. cases door-to-door?

  2. Could be an advertising vehicle also.

  3. Hi ~ Excellent site! Happened to notice the 2-horse beer cart - What a great picture. I could not help wanting more information... My last name is Bartels & I live in Edwardsville, Illinois. A must have for my Family Bar :) Any ideas on how to get a copy/print?

  4. Not sure if anyone has any of the originals, but I'll pass on your info to Stashu
