This large, distinctive horse-drawn vehicle is a Pantechnicon van, which were used for transporting large, bulky objects, often used by removals firms for moving and delivering furniture. They were often drawn by two horses, and could be placed onto railway wagons to transport items over larger distances. This one is in superb original condition at the Milestones Museum, Hampshire in a typical street setting of the Edwardian era
