The horse *Nel, hitched to a post, with a Surrey in tow.
Surrey with the fringe on top detail: "The wheels are yellow, the upholstery's brown,
the dashboard's genuine leather.
With Eisenglass curtains you can roll right down,
In case there's a change in the weather."
Surrey detail wording is from the Musical "Oklahoma" by Richard Rogers.
Inside of the House
Card slides open- detail
When the Tab on the left is pulled, the inside of the house is revealed.
*Nel, was the name of my Grandfather's horse
used to pull his Tea Wagon in the late 1800's.
He sold specialty blends of Tea in Rochester, NY. such as Formosa,
Oolong, Orange Pekoe, Dejarling, English Breakfast among others.
Grandfather gave out sample Coffee packets, with Tea sales,
in hopes of increasing Coffee Sales.
While I wanted to paint a Tea Wagon in this card, it would be too
dark, distracting from the rest of the piece.
