How it works


Two examples of delivery wagons, cakes & tea

A slightly faded but quite clear early image showing a 2 men (father & son?) with a horse drawn baker's wagon, with a panel sign painted, "L. CHRIST. SEA CLIFF, BAKER."   No markings or imprint (Sea Cliff, Long Island, c. 1880's? ) Approx. 6.5 x 4.25 inches.  A few scuffs and faint dents, some soiling; no attempt has been made to clean the image.)

Note-- the men are holding cigars.


19th century image of a TEA WAGON, marked "W. R. PRICE, BEST TEA, Direct from Importers"  A smaller sign reads, "Finest China & Japan Tea/ Wholesale & Retail."  Stamped on back, "L. B. Gorham, Photographer, Mt. Kisco, N.Y."  Cropped to fit a frame (!) but still a fine image-- lower edge of image has been lost, along with the matt. A Google search pulled up an ad for this seller which includes the catch phrase, "Always wait for the wagon/ and we'll all have tea" (1893 Elijah Clarence Hyatt, History of Mt. Kisco, p. 30.)

Approx. 10" x 6 5/8"
