(Wednesday Sep 2, 1903)
Thomas Baker at the reins of his brand spanking new carriage down on the International Square. That the Hotel in the background. The very first couple to ride in the buggy were Mr and Mrs William Hawke as part of their wedding ceremony that very day (note the white ribbons on Tom's whip and the carriage door handle). The buggy was made in London, Ontario and cost over $1000. A staggering amount of money for those days, the carriage was unique in that it was the very first rubber tyred hack in Gananoque.
