Crankin' It Up

Frank Crumit recorded this Vaudeville gem on April 13, 1926. Buggys were nostalgic antiques in 1926? That's what it sounds like in this song. City dwellers may well have had little exposure to buggys in the 1920's; what with trolleys, trains, and automobiles. Even rural hayseed types had converted over to autos by then, even though horse power still was being used for farming, and travel when the roads were muddy.
