Man on donkey-drawn cart at quayside

A man on a donkey-drawn cart at a quayside in Kintyre. Although other forms of transport, such as bicycles and charabancs, were in use around Campbeltown during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the horse and cart was still the most frequently-used way of getting about. Horse-drawn vehicles of every shape and size were used to transport passengers and goods. Coal and peat were transported to the distilleries in the area and also to homes for domestic use. Carts were also used to transport grain from newly arrived ships to the maltings
