This type of surrey was built by the Joubert & White Company of Glens Falls, New York, and is
sometimes referred to as a "Glens Falls buckboard". This specific example has commonly been referred to as the
"Paymaster's buggy", but research suggests that before 1912, the U.S.
Army used only Abbot-Downing Company Concord buggies. Judge John W. Meldrum
This surrey features an exterior rear compartment, rubber coated canvas roof, flannel headliner, gold fringe around the canopy edges, and brown leather tuck and pleat upholstery on the back rests. The body has a natural wood finish with "240" painted in gold on each side of the front seat. The floor and underside are painted tan. "1905/ may 20" was written in pencil on the underside of the body apparently while the paint was still wet. The serial number "908" is stamped on the leading edge of each seat and on top of the wooden spring block.
