Squint Shot 041109

Apparatus still exists in one of our storefronts to lift horse-drawn carriages for repair. This technology was put into action over a hundred years ago and remains in place, just waiting for someone interested in a pulley system that could raise carriages as heavy, or heavier, then modern-day cars. An opening in the floor, which has been sealed for many years, shows the footprint of about 12' x 8', large enough for chains to hang down to be secured to the carriage.
