of the Carriage Museum of America provides the foundation for yet
another unique book for horse-drawn vehicles, focusing on ambulances.
There have been only a handful of books published about ambulances
- some of them being very authoritative treatises. The first section
of the book covers the military ambulance focusing on the specifications
and drawings that could be found for building such vehicles. In
order that civil-war re-enactors can make a complete and authentic
turnout the specifications for the harness is included. The second
section of the book begins with the history of civilian ambulance.
This chapter contains the drawings and specifications that were
printed in the Hub and Carriage Monthly for the professional carriage
builders-published monthly. Section three of the book is veterinary
ambulances for horses drawn by horses-with a few small animal ambulances
for cats and dogs. The book covers a variety of topics related to
the horse drawn ambulances, with something of interest to anyone
interested in history, horses, ambulances, or military history.
