Dray. Not exactly a word we use everyday anymore. Ask your kids about it…see if they know what a dray is.
This photo takes us back to 1909..back to the days when, as advertised on the wall of one building..you could get a REALLY GOOD 5- cent cigar.
The fellow handling the team is Len Grover who operated a dray for about ten years or so from 1905.
The picture was taken in front of what now is the National Food Store.

A dray is a wagon or cart used to haul goods from one place to another.
The Museum will be closing for the winter on Saturday September 29, 2012.
The blog will continue weekly..I hope you will keep reading:)
