Early Homestead Building, Family, and Red River Cart Drawn by Ox

Photographer: Ryder Larsen. Early Homestead Building, Family, and Red River Cart Drawn by Ox. Red River Settlement? Date: [ca. 1869-1870]  The size and the relative complexity of the building indicates that homes at this time were not simply crude sod structures. The so-called Red River cart is famously identified with the Métis community and was made entirely without nails or any iron.
