Mr. James Burns age 79, with the wagon purchased new by his father seventy years ago when James was only 9 years old.  He spoke of the day that the wagon was delivered to his the family farm, and of those long-ago days when he and his brother would use the wagon on the farm, and to go to town to pick up supplies.  The wagon has remained in the Burns family since it was delivered to them Thursday, March 18, 1937.


It was a real treat to meet Mr. Burns, and to listen to him reminisce about his family and the days of his youth.

The Wagon was made in Hickory, NC, and sold through W. N. Watson Supply Company, Greenville, SC Original bill of sale with delivery instructions to the Barns farm.
