History of the Albany Cutter: Throughout the early nineteenth century, sleighs became increasingly lighter and more stylish. The new stylish look included curved backs, flared sides and sweeping dashes. In 1814, James Goold of Albany, New York, popularized this swell-body style and these sleighs became known as Albany sleighs. The sleek design of the Albany cutter made the sleigh very popular in urban areas.
