Carriers
« on: March 20, 2019, 07:42:57 PM »
I appreciate this is something of a long shot but I am interested in finding out about horse drawn carriers working into St. Ives and Huntingdon at the end of the 19th and beginning of 20th centuries.  I have been having a look round the internet and can't find any information at all of what, if anything, was being provided.  I wondered if anyone could suggest a website that might have any information.

Thanks.  I've had a go but couldn't find anything.  I may have got the search words wrong so if anyone has found anything, please let me know.
