Now I wonder what kind of critters would be barrowed in this cage … pidgeons perhaps? Very cool WW, Carin!
Yes. Happy pigeons on their way to a meet. (This, versus a ‘meat’ is what makes them happy.)
For chickens possibly? Happy WW :)
Hmmm. Think I’ll stick with the racing pigeons. It’s a merrier image, don’t you think? Unless of course you mean ‘racing chickens’… :D
I think it would be for transporting pigeons. Great photo!
Ach. Those were the days! When pigeon racers travelled the streets with pride from race to race. There was a guy in my neighbourhood growing up that had homing pigeons. Lovely to see them fly about en masse every summer night after dinner. Makes you wonder what people do for fun nowadays… (:
My grandfather kept pigeons in a coop in the backyard, but they were for eating. Those Belgians will eat anything!
I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that.
Before I peeked at the comments, I had the thought it was for transporting some sort of animal. Pigeons, hmm? Interesting! Where on earth did you spot this? I’ve never known anyone who kept pigeons. (Did you ever see the film “Birdie”? If not, do!)
Have googled Birdy and put it on my list. Thanks!
(I have it on some authority, however, that the cage might have been for chickens not pigeons. I’m choosing to ignore this authority.)
And it was in the Distillery District a few weeks ago. For sale, I believe.
A pigeon meet?? Cool! And there is something wonderfully archaic yet totally functional about the wheelbarrow/pigeon carrier. Your photos always suggest fascinating stories, Carin.
I’d more often rather ‘know’ the story behind things than make one up!
