This coach was used to pick up people at Scarborough Beach Station and transport them to the hotels at Prouts Neck. The driver's name was Harris Seavey. The passengers are not identified but if you notice they had various tools in their hands. The tools are a chef's knife, a broadax, a bugle and a hoe. This could have been a Labor Day celebration from years ago.Show Details
This coach was built in 1879 by Abbott and Downing for the Farragut House in Rye Beach, New Hampshire. Harris Seavey bought it in 1900 and had it shipped to Scarborough. The coach named Tally-Ho was bottle green and had yellow wheels. The body was suspended on leather straps unlike other coaches of the day.
