Bennett Buggy’s

2hp

Here is a piece that is fitting for the current global state, a snapshot from the dirty thirties. This design is the perfect symbol of the Great Depression in Canada, not only of the material life but also the great will of invention. This vehicle is literally a shell (motor and drive train pulled) of the great product of the industrial age, hacked and transformed into a horse pulled buggy.  The “Bennett Buggy”, named after Prime Minister R B Bennett, was a popular and common creation, used by farmers too strapped to afford the fuel during the economic downturn. The ingenuity is noteworthy and demonstrates the types of innovation that comes out of hardship, and life on the dry prairie. Hopefully the same spirit of ‘getting on” will prevail in today’s economic climate.
