I’m working on a longer post, which touches on Governess Carts (and which I hope to put up tomorrow), but in the meantime I found this lovely old image.

This is another from Rider & Driver (the May 30, 1914, issue), and the caption says:

“Mr. Wm. Foster’s Mel Valley’s Bauble 13.2 B.M., first in Governess Car Class at the last Olympia Show, driven by Miss Brocklebank, and Reserve Champion in Single Harness, to Mel Valley’s fame.”


Miss Brocklebank (described in a photo caption on the following page as "one of the greatest women whips in England") driving Mel Valley's Bauble to a Governess Cart (from Rider & Driver, May 30, 1914)
