History and use
This whitechapel buggy is in unrestored condition. It still has rubber tyres and the hood from its period on the road. The makers plate on the back of the seat reads A.E. Roberts Carriage Motor Works Ipswich. The Roberts family donated this vehicle built around 1900 to the Queensland Museum in 1982. A.E. Roberts (& Son) were highly respected coachbuilders in Ipswich from 1884 to the 1930s, and built a range of vehicles from fine carriages and hearses, buggies and sulkies, to farm wagons and carts.
