    Please help!

    Have no idea what this is. Gear driven. Pull the lever to engage/ mesh the gears. Steering wheel tilts forward and disengages the gears.

    No marks of any kind that I can see.

    Very heavy, well made frame with steering.

    Thanks for your help!

      First you need big help so that the pictures are not right side up. You are supposed to fix your pics before you post it, or so the rules say ??!!
    2. chuckmatt530, 6 months ago
      Thank you for letting me know. For some reason the pictures would turn 1/4 turn after uploading. I think it is fixed now.

      Thanks again!

      Looks like a ancient(?) hay baler. Not so much ancient as once was type of thing.
    4. chuckmatt530, 6 months ago
      It is small. Child sized. I cannot tell if this originally had some sort of engine or had pedals somewhere. The tires are thin and I believe rubber. They are mostly disintegrated except for one front tire.

      Teeny-tiny bales of hay?
    6. chuckmatt530, 6 months ago
      Lol! Salesman sample hay bailer?

      I remember another one posted here on CW. (I still don't understand what a "mail carrier" in this context is.)
    11. chuckmatt530, 6 months ago
      One explanation that I read was that at the time the fastest train in the world was in Ireland and called the Irish Mail. May be a nod to that train?

      Why is it called an Irish mail cart?

      The toy needed a name and the company decided to call it the Irish Mail, after the Irish Mail train, the fastest train in the world at that time. ... Compared to it, a tricycle (a girl's toy) was for sissies.May 23, 2010
