Stagecoach



Today's picture shows a stagecoach on the road into Deadwood. The picture was taken in 1889. The cool thing about this picture is the stagecoach looks just like the ones in the Old West movies. In looking at old photographs, it seems like there are many, many different styles of stagecoaches, and they rarely look like the ones in the movies.

  1. That's a pretty fancy stage coach. I wonder if they have those red velvet seats like they show in the movies. I also wonder what road that path they are riding on has evolved into. It would be interesting to see what is there at that exact spot today.

  2. Looks like rush hour - and moving just as fast as today!

  3. It is a beautiful coach. What a long line, reminds me of I95.

  4. No doubt someone in that line of traffic was saying 'Hey move your @ss!'
