Brown/Yellow Buggies-

                                                     (Photo taken by Sylvia Hasenkopf)  
In the Montgomery area of upstate New York, we saw many light brown colored buggies in the Palatine section, rather than the typical black buggies found in PA.  I am told that the color designates the particular sect of the Amish.
NOTE:  It seems that these brownish buggy tops are considered 'yellow' by the Byler Amish who are originally from Wilmington, PA.  An interesting Amish 'discovery' for certain!  More to come as the research unveils other tid-bits...
