My maternal grandfather, Ignatz Ganas was a teamster back in the day when the term actually reflected what they did. They drove teams of horses. He also did some tailoring for private clients.
I wish I knew more about him back then. Was he independent? Did he haul for some specific company or companies? I do know that he owned his team and a wagon. He died before I was born, but I remember his work / horse shed. When I was a curious child, I badly wanted to explore that shed. It still smelled of the dressed leather tack; it had a grinding wheel and a lot of very interesting looking stuff. Where’s that time machine I keep asking for??
