Cart marking 2017 – 500 years of transport history

Jul 14, 2017
The cart marking ceremony was held at Guildhall Yard in London on 12 July, 2017.

This was the 500th year for cart marking: the first ever recorded system for taxing vehicles.  The removals industry was stylishly represented by Evan Cook, with an 1893 hand cart; Michael Gerson’s 1947 Morris van and beautiful horse-drawn Purdey pantechnicon; the 1928 Morris van (Sammie) from Bishop’s Move and White’s 1890 tunnel van, owned by the company since new, pulled by three rare-breed Suffolk Punch horses and driven by Mrs Ness Morris.
