Description Black and red buggy, a four-wheeled family vehicle. This is a low set Whitechapel buggy. It has been restored by Bert Tuckerman and Ted Finch and the wheelwright was the late Gerard Smith of Kaikoura. This buggy has no lamps, but their attachments are on each side and come out from the seat, as can be seen in image 2.
