Old-time photo of the day: Buggy safety

Story and picture from the web site Topix.........From 1959: Here's the caption: "Sgt. Cletus Stangl of the Iowa highway patrol attaches reflectorized tape that glows at night to an Amish buggy at Oelwein.I thought some readers might find this picture interesting. My question is, would buggy safety checks like this one in 1959 be helpful today?. Richard


I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
