The Corole Baby carriage is a family owned and operated business in Corole, Florida.
The carriage has been around since 1947 and has been operated by the Corole City of Palm Beach County for more than 50 years.
The family has been in the business for more then 40 years.
“It’s not the best thing to have your own carriage, but it’s what we do,” Corole Mayor Richard Hogg said.
The cab is a two-person, wooden, four-wheel-drive vehicle.
It is a bit of a surprise to most of us to see that this is still in use today.
A few years ago, it had a passenger that died.
“I just don’t know why we don’t just use a motor car.
There’s nothing better than the smell of gasoline,” Mayor Hogg told ABC News.
The Coroles carriage was first used in 1954 when it was used for the first time at a funeral.
It was owned and run by a young man named William L. Corole.
Corolole died in 1977 and was buried in a Corole cemetery.
A plaque in the Coroles cemetery says he is “an important part of the history of Palm Beaches and this city.”
It says that he was “a true friend of Palm Springs and the local community” and “was a proud grandfather.”
He is remembered by the residents of Corole as a kind, caring, and caring man who loved his family and cared for his neighbors.
“It was just a pleasure to ride with him.
He would go up to you, and tell you how he felt.
It just made him feel like he was with us all the time,” said resident John Smith.
“You could always count on him to come home to you.
He was always smiling and happy to see us,” said neighbor Bob Bowers.
The driver of the Corolles carriage, Charles M. Johnson, died in 1984.
It has since been donated to the CoroLone Community Center.
The car was given to the community by a friend of Corolene Mayor Hoggle, who says it is a beautiful vehicle.
“He didn’t want it to be the last of the carriages.
He wanted it to stay in Palm Beach,” Mayor L.G. Hogg explained.
The plaque in Corolone Cemetery says that Coroline Mayor H.O.H. Johnson is buried with full respect and respect for the past and for the future.
Johnson is remembered in the community as a true friend and a true citizen who lived a life of generosity and service,” said Mayor Higg.
The vehicle is now on display at the Corobel Community Center in Palm Beach.
