Daily Question – 28

What are they carrying in the wagon, and to whom did they finally deliver it?

The Budweiser Clydesdales have been a symbol for the Anheuser-Busch company since 1933, when company president August Busch sent a case of Budweiser to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a carriage drawn by a team of Clydesdales. The horses are often seen in local parades and are featured in Anheuser-Busch’s advertising campaigns.

    Since I can spot a dalmation on the wagon, I’m going to say that these are the famous Budweiser Clydesdales.

    Therefore that’d be beer that they’d be carrying. And some wiki-ing reveals that there was a famous delivery made to FDR, so I’d guess that’s whom they delivered to finally.

  3. August Busch sent a beer wagon to the President, drawn by the famous Clydesdales horses…..

  4. I am guessing they are carrying the dog Pickles and the recovered Jules Rimet Trophy back to FIFA or they are carrying pickels for the celebration banquet after the World cup in 1966.

  5. Looks like the Budweiser Clydesdale team, so will guess this was the delivery of the first case of booze to the New York governor when prohibition ended…?

  6. The Budweiser Clydesdales. They were first used in 1933 to carry the first case of post-Prohibition beer from the St. Louis brewery down the Pestalozzi Street in St. Louis.

  7. The Budweiser Clydesdales?
    They delivered the first case of beer after the prohibition repeal in the US all the way from St. Louis to DC (to FDR), making several promotional stops along the way

  8. Budweiser Clydesdale delivering beer to white house after pepeal of prohibition.

  9. Budweiser Clydesdale hitch team – the first one in 1933, carrying the first batch of beer post Prohibition from the St Louis factory all over the country right up to White House (FDR)

  10. Dear Uncle,

    Whew! Finally!

    The wagon is carrying a case of beer, to be delivered to President Franklin D. Roosevelt to thank him for ending Prohibition. The beer was Budweiser. Poor FDR.

    Kind regards,

  11. I’m good in cutting and pasting, ain’t i?

    The Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales were formally introduced to August A. Busch Sr., President of Anheuser-Busch, Inc., by his son on April 7, 1933. Prohibition had just been repealed, and to commemorate the event, the hitch thundered down Pestalozzi Street in St. Louis, carrying withit the first case of post-Prohibition beer from the St. Louis Anheuser-Busch brewery.

    Dalmatian dogs have traveled with the hitch since the 1950s.
    In the early days of brewing, dalmatians were bred and trained to protect the horses and guard the wagon when the driver went inside to make deliveries. The black and white spotted dogs were swift enough to keep up with the wagons, and their light colored bodies and distinctive marking made them easy to see during twilight hours.

  12. Budweiser Beer drawn by their famous Clydesdale Horse Wagon.. Wiki reveals they delivered it to FDR at the white house..
