Welcome to a flashback in time, when people used horses, not vehicles.
They say “it takes a village,” but if it was 1920-something, it took a horse– maybe a couple. As absurd as it seems today, if necessary, entire towns were known to relocate all their buildings via horse-and-buggy to proverbially greener pastures. With the rapid railway and urban development boom at the turn-of-the-century, lots of folks found themselves looking to relocate their log cabins, Victorian mansions, and other abodes, and it looks like all they needed were some solid stallions.
Clancy's comment: There ya go. The good old days, eh?
