TAKE A STROLL BEHIND A HORSE DRAWN CARRIAGE AND PICTURE WHAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE TO LIVE IN THE 1800'S with this 1897 McLaughlin Carriage, Early piece of McLaughlin Carriage Company, very rare, rumble seat for passengers.
In the year 1876, Robert McLaughlin realized that his carriage works in Eniskillen, Ontario must be moved to a more favorable location if it was to grow. So he decided to move 35 miles to the larger town of Oshawa. In Oshawa, Robert built a small 3 story building, where he produced his carriages. It was his reputation for quality which earned the confidence of his customers and made the McLaughlin Carriage Company the success it became. In 1880, Robert came up with an invention that was to revolutionize the carriage business. His invention was a new type of carriage gear. The gear is that part of a carriage between the body and the wheels: the springs, couplings, chassis, and the mechanism that permits the front wheels to turn and thus steer the vehicle. It was the introduction of the fifth wheel to the gear of his carriage, which made the name of McLaughlin known throughout the country as a safer and smoother riding carriage. The appeal of the gear to other carriage manufacturers was so great that they sent in orders for nearly 20,000. Once the name McLaughlin became known for quality, other carriage makers began buying the gear and soon competitors began purchasing complete carriages
1897 This McLaughlin Carriage is an older restoration showing little to no wear. Solid wood, leather coachwork is soft and extremely nice!
