Large Watercolor of a Barge Horse, Named Bob,

Signed M.N. Carr,

Circa 1860

(Ref: NY9468-Urrx)

A large watercolor painting of a famous Barge Horse, Bob.  An impressive horse that once pulled barges along the River Ancholme towpath in the Brigg area was so well-known and highly regarded that an artist, M N Carr, painted his picture.

We are trying to research the metal plaque to the reverse which reads: Bob the massive Brigs Bargehorse famed for his magnificent mane & tail which was braided when pulling barges up the River Ancholme, Circa 1860. Briggs is in North Lincolnshire.
