What a great family photo. Such a sedate form of transport.
My late Dad grew up in Roman Road, Bethnal Green, if it's the same Roman Rd.
Yes, its the same one. Near to Victoria Park.
Ah that's a coincidence, we used to go there to visit my Gran in the 60's. Happy memories.
I remember seeing horse and carts regularly when I was young, it's not often that you see them these days though.
That's a lovely horse and cart. Bet it would cause traffic chaos though if they take it out on the London streets during rush hour!
I can't imagine trying to get around in a horse and cart in London traffic, but I suppose during the lockdown it's a lot easier! I've walked around that area taking pictures several times.
There's a street market on Tues, Thurs and Sat Steve.
there might be pollution unless they stop and pick up the poop... it is a great photo.
Goodness, I have never seen such a thing. We have the Amish buggies here, but they are all black. That is a nifty little cart, and the horse is beautiful.
Fabulous picture it's worth framing 💐
I wonder if anyone was running behind with a shovel to collect the the good stuff for their garden.
Very interesting! Lovely photo!💖
When I was young I wanted a pony. Mum bought one that came complete with a trap. I can remember going out in the trap. You could not ride the pony in a paddock as you would get bucked off. Lovely photo.
And lots of lovely manure for the garden!
Gorgeous photo. I wondered the same thing about clearing up after the horse. Happy Sunday.
What a lovely happy go lucky sight to see in a built up area!I wonder if they live on a large block with enough land to house the pony and cart? If not does your grandson know where?
I'm ringing him today and I'll ask him. As far as I know they all live in a block of flats so they must have somewhere to stable the horse.
That is lovelyJulie xxxx
Censored. I hang my head in shame.
What a fun way to travel with the family. Of course it wouldn't be so fun if it was raining :)
Not a bad way to travel these days. I'd happily change my car for a horse and trap. I used to drive one when I was little.
My friend used to live in Rosebank Gardens,off the Roman Rd,Bow.I used to love going to the market down there.xx
No pollution except on the ground! lol
