Mule and cart delivering cargo from stores in San Ignacio, early 1900's
These were the days, when Mule and Cart were the only means of transport in Town. This was the multi purpose mule cart. It picked up the garbage, was used in funerals to carry the coffin etc etc.
Mule and Cart were used to carry the cargo, from the Boat Wharf to the shops, I was told that the Mule & Cart on this picture, was owned by Mr Norman Broaster. And others included Mr Franklin and Mr Waight and others.. . Mr. William (aka Bill) Waight used to own a mule and cart that use to deliver water from the river to their home and do delivery for people.
