Description:

1) A high light-weight horse drawn wagon with one seat, really a democrat. The wagon was once used by the Oblate Priest who travelled between Port Douglas and 29 Mile House. Shafts are missing, sections of plank make the red painted box frame. Six boards nailed to boards below them make the floor within the frame. The seat is a piece of plank with strips of lighter board on the back and on both ends. Secured by two metal straps screwed to the seat area is an elevated back rest. The wheels have metal tires and wooden spokes ; back wheels are larger than the front set. Tied to the wooden back axle and at right angles to it are two sets of metal leaf springs. The front spring is parallel to the front axle. A reach connects the two axles Condition: In general, all metal is rusted. The wheels are disintegrating. 2) [October 2013] - this wagon was rebuilt in 2011 including the box and the wheels. The wheels were constructed by a wheelwright from Armstrong BC. The local Catholic church provided private funding for the new wheels. All that remains of the original artifact is the undercarriage and suspension and axels. The box was rebuilt by George Henry. The wagon was re-painted by museum staff.
