Shhh. I'm trying to sneak out before the man who owns this place and his wife wake up.
Yeah, um, well I don't think there's gonna be a cab passing by any time soon. Whaddya want me to do? Yell for Uber? Hey! ... are you an Uber HORSE?
Oyyy. Suddenly I feel a headache coming on.
Seriously, you gotta relax.
I have it all planned out. Just gotta find a horse already hooked up to a buggy. I told ya I already have a map and everything, so I know where I'm going. Easy peasy.
In the 19th century it is the main method of transportation. Horseback riding in towns like the one you live in is less common and takes skill and more practice than driving a buggy. Buggy horses are already trained and used to pulling occupants. Even children during this time are comfortable driving them..
In the 19th century, over 7,500 horses are living and working in Toronto.
Regardless of the weather, carriages are bringing citizens of wealth into the city, while the lower working class wait in the elements to board horse-drawn streetcars to get to their destination. (Sound familiar?)
And now you know.
