Description
A black-and-white real photograph postcard of a woman sitting in an ox cart at McLeod's Amusement Park, also known as Happy Hollow, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The woman is wearing a dress, overcoat, cloche hat, hosiery and heels. The cart is made out of logs and planks. The woman is holding the reins to the ox, although the ox appears to be chained in place and is not moving. There is a sign on the cart that reads [TRAVELING - THRU - ARK./ ON - THE - WAY - HOME.] There is a license plate on the proper left side of the wagon, above the wheel, that is partially legible. In the background is a structure overtaken by vines with some partially legible signs, including: [HOTEL - INN/ HOT SPRINGS/ HAPPY HOLLOW] and [OUR SUMMER HOME].
