Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Sandham Carriage Shop
Exploring photos with the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.

This is a late 19th-century image of the former Sandham Carriage Shop in Virgil. Robert Sandham, likely the man posing with the carriage, built and painted wagons and carriages here from the late 1800s until circa 1917. Note the plank wood sidewalks along the fence and the newly planted trees lining the dirt road. The Sandham Carriage Shop was on the east side of Niagara Stone Road, close to the intersection of Creek Road. The Sandham family lived in the house behind the carriage shop. The carriage shop and home no longer exist. There is an accounts ledger of the carriage shop in the NOTL Museum’s collection with a number of local names inside!
