Wagon Accident - Beer Spilled
Lykens, PA

August 14, 1901

On Wednesday evening, August 15, 1901, George Kosier's team loaded with freight of various kinds, was upset in front of H.E. Henry's bakery shop. The team had been backed to the pavement to unload bread for Mr. Henry, who has it shipped to him from Steelton until his new oven is completed. In starting off again, the driver turned too abruptly, resulting in the overturning of the wagon and throwing the horse. Among the contents of the wagon were a number of cases of beer, which were scattered around and several bottles broken. The horse was unhitched from the wagon and got up, after which the wagon was righted and reloaded. Neither the horse nor the wagon sustained injury.
