Featured Image: Brewster landau, once part of Sarah Hewitt’s collection, now owned by the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan. The carriage was used to bring Abram Hewitt and Theodore Roosevelt to Columbia University in 1899 when Roosevelt received an honorary degree, and again in 1924 when the Abram Hewitt’s granddaughter, Eleanor Margaret Green, wed Prince Viggo of Denmark. The Hewitt family coat-of-arms is painted on both sides of the body of the carriage.
