I am writing a story that is set in Philadelphia 1904. The protagonist of the story travels to a part of town near a church, parks his horse and buggy, and walks a couple of blocks to visit a brothel. I know there were stables that were used (at least that is what I have learned from my initial research), but what other methods are there for this sort of short term parking that we take for granted?
- Hitching posts
- Tethering rings
How did they prevent theft of their horse and buggy with hitching posts and tethering rings?
