FYI: In case some of you are wondering, I do play around with these photo's before I post them. Reason being that many of the photo's are very faded or have blemishes and I try to make them look the best possible even though I really am not trained in this field(trial and error).

lol...the Russian sniper in the bushes. Just kidding. A guess only really. No date on the reverse. Trying to date it by the child's clothing and the photo's border. Maybe 1930's? Is the translation "Drive into the Blue" which is a German saying that means taking a road trip with no destination in mind? In Canada we call this "A Sunday Drive". Thank you again Wilhelm!

Adorable!

But you know...it could as late as 1960 or so. I have pictures of myself that look similar. That could almost be me.

No goat in my photos though, I am sad to say.

lol... Well if it was taken in the 50's or 60's it really doesn't matter to me. Just a sweet German photo!

It is not a typical goat cart. I think it may have been custom made. That doesn't help with dating though.
