How did Ella Get Around?

Ella’s diaries between 1884 and 1922 mention the various forms of transportation that she and her neighbors used in Norwich and the surrounding area.

Travel around town in the late 1800s and early 1900s was by horse and buggy or sleigh. The Norwich Historical Society collection includes this picture of Mrs. Dale Bullock across from the Patterson Chair Company in her horse-drawn sled around 1900.
