Tobacco sled

Tobacco sled
Tobacco sled. Almost identical to a tobacco wagon, a sled used wooden skids instead of wheels. Farmers who owned fields that did not drain well often preferred sleds to wheeled carts since they bogged down less often. The video explains details this particular sled was made and used.
