Original Caption: Carrying crated chickens and eggs to market.
Even before the motor-powered tractor was invented or the truck became necessary to run a farm, the motor vehicle was a handy asset on the farm. When moving around the farm to tend to animals, plowing and reaping crops, or traveling to and from town, farmers saw the potential for saving a huge amount of time and energy when the car was invented! This image shows one clever way that farmers had already thought to use their motorcar: to haul crates of chickens and eggs to market. Without a car, the farmer would have had to use a horse and wagon. This would have put more work on a likely already tired horse and taken much more time out of the farmer’s day.
