Stop Horsing Around - Cherrelyn Horse Streetcar Denver Colorado 1910c postcard

Horse Drawn Streetcar with Horse as Passenger, Denver, Colorado 1910c postcard (click image for larger view)

According to the caption on similar cards of the Cherrelyn horse drawn streetcar, the horse would pull the streetcar up an incline slope in Denver and would be placed on the platform at the end of the car for the ride back down on the return journey.

If the horse were a reflective sort, it might have wondered why it couldn't just ride up the slope like everyone else since that was the toughest leg of the journey for it.
