Bennett Buggy

Named for Prime Minister R.B. Bennett, a Bennett Buggy was a popular mode of Transportation for impoverished prairie farmers. Unable to afford gasoline, farmers removed the extraneous engine from an automobile chassis and used horses to pull it. The Bennett Buggy became a symbol of disenchantment associated with the Great Depression and the Prime Minister of the time.
