I just received an e-mail from Hansen wagon. It was their 2008 newsletter or so. I ran across then when i was looking for wooden Wheels for a Beach Cart the Delaware Indian River Life-Saving Museum wanted built.

If You want some impressive wooden wagons look here

I’m guessing that the wheel is about 20’ high. If the people are 6’ then the axle is about 10 ft high.

They would have to raise the wires if it was in a parade. And the Pooper Scooper Patrol would be busy.

It might have been for a mine wagon. Where they would bring the ore to town to the smelter and then take supplies back to the mine. That would be one giant mule team.
