It's January, winter, and I'm working on a Christmas story so it's only natural that I'm thinking of sleigh bells jingling as my hero and heroine travel about. So, while doing my research, when I found this 1898 Edison Film Company video of horse-drawn sleigh rides in Central Park, New York, I thought the least I could do was share it with you.
If the video doesn't work below, you can view it at the Library of Congress
