About "Ballantine Transport Riders Wagon"

A very detailed depiction of the beautifully designed Ballantine wagon, used largely by transport riders. Ballantine’s wagon works was situated in Keiskamma Hoek, Eastern Cape. Black Stinkwood was the finest timber for making a wagon because of its strength. The brake blocks, however had to be made from soft wood such as that of Erythrinas and Cabbage trees. Each wagon builder had his own design painted on the wagon and here we see the Ballantine design accurately recorded.
Jeff Huntly had a lengthy correspondence with Wiltse John Ballantine, one of the last wagon makers. The Works closed down in 1967. Jeff gained valuable information from the correspondence about the construction, design and materials used in wagon making. This knowledge is reflected in the historical accuracy of the image. The trees in the background are Illala Palms found in lowveld Southern Africa.
ORIGINAL: Egg-tempera on Gesso Panel.
