Do you think flashers on the roads are a modern invention, so that all motorists there would be aware that “the masters of life” are driving along the road? Nothing like this. In one way or another, flashers were, if not always, then long ago. They just looked different.
In those days, when there were no cars, and everyone rode on horses, either the bells or the bells hung on the harness. So that everyone knows that someone is going and happy, hiding, looking around, in general, were aware of.
So the "flasher" of the times of triples, carriages and sleds with carts together with horsepower were ... bells. That's how that one is on the arc, on the top photo. It was simply impossible to hang the bells on the harness, it could fly well for that. The bells were laid to the sovereign people, so that everyone from afar could hear - someone serious was driving - off the road, let go, fall, serious people go.
Mere mortals also wanted to hear about the fact that they were going. But not bells were hung, but bells.These are the three kruglyasha in the front of the photo.

It would seem - what's the difference. And the difference is significant. And not only in appearance, but most importantly - in sound. The bell sound is bright and sonorous. The bells are more mundane and deaf. In order to create something like a less loud ringing, entire garlands with bells were hung up. These were such show-offs, to show how much we are cool. They did it mostly for big events. For example, on a big holiday like a wedding. Or if it was necessary to push out the wealth, almost every day. But still, even with the garlands of bells, the sound was not the same - deaf.

So it turns out that the "flashers" on our roads have been around for a long time. However, not ours either. Just before they were forged and cast, and now - electron-light. And the meaning is the same.
And they told this story and showed the old bells of the harness and bells in the Forging Settlement Museum in Kolomna.
