Ox Cart Girl In Bonnet and Dress

My granddaughter in period costume takes the reins of the ox. The cart is a "Sulky," or alternatively, a  "Studcart." 
Music: Din Din Wo, Habib Koité, Bamada, From the Album Muso Ko

Remember this picture from June 14, 2010? Compare the carts and kids, separated by over one-hundred years and 1500 miles.
