A photo of a “heavenly wheelbarrow” (the caption on the back of the wheelbarrow says “Heavenly Wheelbarrow) taken in 1910 in or near Qingdao.
That photo has been in this blog before, but not with those details!
Next to that photo, on the same webpage, was another wheelbarrow, all wooden, without notes, except the name "Chinese wheelbarrow." The details are nice. I suppose the rails and knobs are more than decorative, if a load could have been tied in or covered.
