Ox Cart on Runners

This is a fascinating tableau, and it appears it was equally fascinating in real life. The note on back says “Ox cart on Madera (?) Island Note the small round stones which pave the street. Carriage has no wheels, just log runners.”

And that pretty much says it all.

    This looks like it might be Funchal – on Madeira (of the wine fame) Island off the coast of Portugal and Morroco, Africa.
