Large image of a well-maintained vintage rag and bone cart

The following photo of a well-maintained rag and bone cart was taken at the London Harness Horse Parade 2014. It is courtesy of Thomas Franklin whose family own the cart and the horse. Thomas's father was at one time a rag and bone man, which he describes as a 'totter'.

The chains on the cart show that the sides could be raised vertically to support a load.
