A Rikshaw drawn by a man in Ceylon' from ‘A Letter From Ceylon’ from ‘Highroads of Geography, The Royal School Series’ - Introductory Book—Round the World with Father published in 1916. He goes on to say - 'I have just been for a ride through the streets of the chief town. I rode in a rickshaw—that is, a kind of large baby-carriage drawn by a man. My rickshaw had rubber on its wheels, so we went along very smoothly and quickly.' Photo Credits - E.A. Hornel/ The Corporation of Manchester.
