Commentaires : Carriage was on loan from 1967-1970, then given to museum by Major MacDonald. Carriage belonged to the Sumner family who owned a hardware store in Moncton. Their house became the Roman Catholic Bishop's residence. The landau is used on occasion now for parades.
Fonctions : The Landau (from its origins in Landau, Germany) is a high status vehicle used by aristocratic familes as their transportation on special occasions. The vehicle is a large, four-wheeled open bodied design with hoods that close against inclement weather. It is intended to be driven by a coachman supported by a groom. It has two main forms, the Canoe (or Sefton) Landau and the Shelborne Landau. The hoods are an important feature of the vehicle.
