Yankee Magazine features Christmas for Horses

Yankee Magazine posted about the League today on their blog, featuring a 1919 photograph of the League’s “Christmas for Horses” event. Thanks Yankee Magazine!

“It’s easy to forget how important urban work horses were in the days before the automobile, but in the late 19th century and early 20th century, horses were critical in the day-to-day workings of all US cities.  These “draft horses” not only transported all manner of goods within the city and to and from railroad stations, but also facilitated both public and private transportation and emergency services, such as ambulances and fire trucks…before there were trucks.”
