"Wagon Tales: From Glasgow's Sauchiehall St to Cornwall's Horse-drawn Fish and Chips" Step into the world of wagons as we embark on a captivating journey through time and places. Starting in Glasgow's vibrant Sauchiehall Street, where the hustle and bustle of city life meets the charm of yesteryears. Did you know that The Royal Logistic Corps played a pivotal role in transporting goods across the country using their trusty wagons? These sturdy vehicles were not only practical but also symbolized an era when transportation relied on horsepower rather than engines. Speaking of horsepower, imagine gypsy caravans gracefully traversing picturesque landscapes, leaving behind trails of enchantment wherever they went. Inspired by this nomadic lifestyle, artist Louis Wain captured cats enjoying their own adventure in a dog cart - truly a whimsical sight. The Clay Pit by Harold Harvey takes us back to rural England, where hardworking shire horses pulled hay wagons under golden sunsets. This idyllic scene reminds us of simpler times when nature dictated our pace. Venturing further south to Ayr's High Street, we witness scenes from an Advanced Dressing Station during World War I. Matania's poignant artwork depicts brave soldiers being transported on wagons amidst the chaos and uncertainty of war. But it wasn't all serious business; even food had its wagon moment. Picture yourself indulging in mouthwatering fish and chips served from a horse-drawn wagon along Cornwall's charming coastal towns - a true treat for both locals and tourists alike. Glimpses into history continue with Gypsy Encampment at Appleby in 1919 – watercolor on paper capturing the essence of Romani culture against stunning natural backdrops. It serves as a reminder that diversity enriches our society. As technology advanced, so did transportation methods. The iconic Ford Anglia Estate became synonymous with family adventures as it effortlessly carried loved ones and their belongings to new destinations.
