The goat cart was a common device for traveling photographers to use to solicit business in the late 19th century. Children sat on the carts, a picture was taken, and the photo was sold to the delighted family.
The Raleigh Goat Cart Project brings the fun surrounding the goat cart pictures from the turn of the century to present day Raleigh. Little children will be thrilled to pet a goat, feed it a carrot and then "drive" an adorable cart "pulled" by a goat while their family or friends take a picture of them. Family and friends will love sharing pictures of their little goat drivers on social media, which will help spread the wonder of Raleigh to others.
