These types of carriages were primarily used to transport passengers in the cities at the end of the 19th Century. Inspired by the "Berliner" or Sedan cars, they were developed around 1880 in the United States where the were called gondolas; from there they traveled to Cuba and then on to Spain, primarily in Barcelona where they were used as cars for hire (Taxis).
