Illustration from 1930's

Here's a scan of a page from one my mother's books from when she was young, that I also loved as a girl.   The Dominant Vth by Jessie McAlpine (1930).

The girls have hidden their midnight feast goodies in this wheelbarrow and are trying to get it away without the third girl seeing the loot.

It's funny how I remember it being a better picture of the barrow itself. I colored it with my crayons.

"My whole life depends on this wheelbarrow. It's my best friend. I don't have much say in the work I do with it, but I'm trying to enjoy them as much as I can."

Puzzle Craft game's pig wheelbarrow

Puzzle Craft is a farming and mining game, with pattern puzzles. If you match a bunch of chickens, you get pigs. If you match a bunch of pigs, you get cows. If the pigs aren't touching each other but you still want to collect them, at some point you can obtain a wheelbarrow, used for picking up all the pigs on the screen.
