Chariot Late for Toga Party

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

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.
