Day 208 - Carriage Museum, Spider Phaeton, USA

The "Spider" name comes from the delicate lines of this carriage. It was developed in the US in the 1860's and remained popular until the 1890's. It was often used in competitive driving since it was light, comfortable and safer to drive then most two wheelers.
