On market day in the Tuscan village of Foiano della Chiana we came across this relic that was used to transport the sick and injured, but there wasn't a sign to indicate from what era. I'm guessing it was used during WWI. Perhaps long before that. If anyone knows, please let me know.

    A practical and nonpolluting conveyance. :-) It may have been a bumpy ride for the patient. Great shot, Deb. Nice find.
