I apologize for not posting anything the past couple of days. On Wednesday, after spending most of the day at work, I packed up my rental car with items for the CAA booth and drove and drove and drove. And then drove some more. I was headed, of course, toward Pennsylvania and Martin’s Auction … but I hadn’t counted on this also being Homecoming weekend for West Virginia University, which meant no hotel rooms anywhere near Morgantown.

I finally found a room in a hotel outside of Cumberland, Maryland. Which you may recall having read about on this very blog … Cumberland, of course, being where the National Road began.

This year’s carriage auction has featured quite a lot of commercial and delivery vehicles. Here are a few photos of some of them. (They’re not the best quality, as my phone camera did not like the lighting in the building. At all.)

Tomorrow, I’ll share a few photos of a beautiful Sicilian cart that was auctioned this evening. And then when I get back home next week, I’ll share the photos I took with my “real” camera.
