JAMES LUMBERS

450 s/n Paper 15.5" x 21" $185


On a cold, bright, windless night the swish of the sleighs
runners approached the Toll House. The gatekeeper
reluctantly pulled on his overcoat and left the comfort
of his fireside to collect the toll from the horse drawn sled.
There was almost always an exchange of greetings,
as people passed by. The gatekeeper was the main
source of information as to where hazards might lay
along the way. Toll roads were common in Europe long
ago and the tradition carried on here in North America
as a way of raising money to maintain the roads of the day.
They were usually located near the entrance of a town
or hamlet. Wagons and stagecoaches alike stopped to
pay the required toll.
