"Cart Horses: The Unsung Heroes of the Working World" From the bustling streets of Covent Garden Market to the tranquil fields of Sleepy Hollow, they have been an integral part of our history. Mrs Sullivan, a familiar face in Covent Garden Market, relied on these majestic creatures to transport her goods and bring life to the market. The Cart-Horse Show was a grand spectacle, where stallions paraded proudly with their handlers. An engraving captured this magnificent event, showcasing the strength and beauty of these noble animals. In Gladys Davidson's book "Helpers Without Hands, " an illustration depicted cart horses ploughing fields tirelessly. Their hard work ensured bountiful harvests year after year. Joseph Gale's prints transported us back in time - "Sleepy Hollow" evoked a sense of tranquility as horses rested under ancient trees while "Homewards from Plough" showcased their determination as they made their way back home after a long day's work. "On the Road, " a captivating artwork rendered in pencil and watercolor, portrayed cart horses diligently pulling heavy loads along dusty paths. These unsung heroes were the backbone of transportation during those times. Wallace Executed - a powerful lithograph published in 1890 - shed light on society's changing attitudes towards horse-drawn carts as technology advanced. Yet despite this shift, cart horses continued to play vital roles in various industries like agriculture and delivery services. The Jubilee of the Royal Agricultural Society brought together farmers and their trusty steeds for celebration and recognition. An engraving immortalized this momentous occasion when these hardworking animals took center stage. "The Cart-Horse Parade, " featured in The King magazine in 1901, captured another vibrant procession that celebrated these remarkable creatures' contributions to society. Even at Watney Brewery, heavy horses found respite from their laborious duties while delivering beer across town. These well-earned breaks allowed them to recharge before continuing their vital work.
