Bennett Buggy

This image is one of the most requested photos in the University Archives.

It was taken by an unknown photographer about 1935 and pictures a Bennett Buggy being pulled on campus.

The term refers to an automobile that has its engine removed and uses horses for locomotion. It is named for R.B. Bennett, who served as prime minister from 1930 to 1935, the worst years of the Great Depression.
