This cart is sometimes loosely called an ‘accommodation’ and is distinct from the four-wheeled kind in that it is of much simpler and lighter construction. It too had a removable, barrel-shaped frame with canvas tilt. The canvas covering was could be rolled down at the back so, so that the vehicle was usually entered from the front between the shafts. Some carts were entirely boarded up at the back with a side depth of matchboarding about 2ft high. A rear window was not unknown and most carts had weather-proofed canvas curtains at the front. There were many variations of it, more or less shaped up according to need and taste. It is probably the oldest kind of wheeled conveyance used by travelers. Usually it had struts to the shafts and others at the rear so that, unhorsed, it could stand in a level position, usually more securely maintained than by poking the shafts into a hedge or a gate. One of the main assets of the Pot cart was its lightness and manoeuvrability.
