Two Wheeled Tipping Farm Cart 1905.

A two wheeled tipping farm cart,
Oveys Farmyard 1905.
This particular style of cart was in regular use on the farm as a general utility form of transport from the farm to the fields and back again. In the 1930's they started to manufacture the same carts but, with pneumatic wheels and it did not rut the fields or farm tracks as bad as the old style of wheel. With the advent of the tractor coming with pneumatic wheels, so did tractor trailers, by the late 1940's this form of cart had all but dissapeared off the farms.
