Which came first, the chicken or the wheelbarrow?
I photographed this on June 20, 2012, at Legoland, near Windsor.
As wheelbarrows go, it has many flaws. As age goes, it's older than any living chicken, and surely older than the Lego-built chicken next to it.
It has an edge. as a dolly would, but a single-wheeled upright/dolly/handcart wouldn't be very stable. The handles are VERY low. Maybe it once had longer legs.
It was in the Vikings area at Legoland.
