Description: The first hearses were horse-drawn wagons. The one seen in this image collected by the Ohio Federal Writers' Project is made with plate-glass sides designed to display the coffin, full Clarence (circular glass front and end), and four urns atop the carriage. A popular Ohio hearse maker of the time was Merts & Riddle Coach & Hearse Company located in Ravenna, Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
