Olde City Carriage Company

I've know since something like the second day of commuting to Center City Philadelphia from the Fishtown area that I walked past a small stable. Of horses. The Olde City Carriage Company.

One day, standing on the subway (elevated though) forty-odd feet above the street, I heard the slow clip-clop of a horse. Unfortunately I couldn't see anything.

Imagine my delight when not once, but three times this week I've passed this horse and carriage during my morning walk to the subway station, on their own workday commute. I really wanted to take a proper photograph of them, but I didn't want to come off as a crazy person. I also wish the background were a little more picturesque, but then you don't have your horse stables in the poshest parts of the city.

I see that you're reading your Leif Eriksson book. Is it as funny as it seemed when you bought it?
