Mention of wheel mount, in passing, 1874

Looking for a description I once saw of how to clad a wooden wheel in iron, I found this, in a book about automotive manufacturing in The Hub, Volume 15, page 49, published in New York in 1874. In discussing the attachment of wheels, they mention bearings on either side of the wheel, "as is the case with a common wheelbarrow."

Clicking this should get you to the book facsimile.
