“I drove to Caledonia today to a set of sleigh shoes. I found some and I went up town this afternoon to see about getting them fitted. The sleighing is about all gone on the main road. But it is colder today.”
Now we have a general location for our girl. Caledonia New York is a small town located just southwest of Rochester. That explains the crazy amount snow and extreme temperatures.
Below, you will find some pictures of antique Sleighs that I have found. Probably not exactly like the one she was using. But cool to look at. Can you imagine riding around in one of these when it is only 8⁰ out? Not just for fun, but because you needed to.
|This is more of a passinger sleigh. It sounds like her sleigh was more for hauling.|
|I just thought that this was a cool picture|
|My guess is that she was never able to haul this much wood at one time|
|Maybe she used a work sheigh this size?|
