The Horse Won ~ Sort Of

The family got a new car.  They even bought chains for the tires so they could traverse the snowy and muddy roads.  Then one day they stopped paying attention to the road in front of them.

The horse pulling the carriage won the battle – sort of. 

There was now one less noisy vehicle on the road, but in individual steed in the herd wouldn’t be there again either. 

Unfortunately, it takes less time to build a new vehicle than a horse, so in the end the Tin Lizze took top honors. 1915 – NYC

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
