Through the efforts of three CAA members, in three different countries, we now have a stack of (copies of) amazing old photos, more than thirty in all. We believe they’re all from Germany, and they appear to date from the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. I’m working on finding out (I hope) whose turnouts these actually were.

We’ll be reproducing a number of these in the May issue of The Carriage Journal, and I’ll be posting a few others here. But I thought I’d start with just a tidbit of one photo. See the off-side passenger, in the top hat? Check out his magnificent sideburns!
