Central Park in a horse-drawn sleigh

Makes you wish snow was on the ground right now, doesn’t it? This turn-of-the-century postcard depicts winter in the park as even more magical and enchanting than it usually is.

Sleighing in the park was a popular pastime after a snowstorm. View a December 1898 clip of horse-drawn sleighs traveling through Central Park here.
