Chariot Late for Toga Party

Bizarre? Definitely.

Here’s a classic that was on Shorpy. The caption doesn’t reveal very much information, nor does it tell us where this was taken, but I think the photo speaks for itself. It appears to be a toga-wearing child driving a chariot being pulled by two miniature horses. How can you not love this one? Post this one to Pinterest of Facebook for sure.

Washington, D.C., circa 1917. "Devereux child in chariot." Late for the toga party. Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative. (Shorpy)
