~ Wells Fargo Stagecoach ~

by Eric J H Joyce August. 18, 2012 3491 views

The term “stage” originally referred to the distance between stations on a route, the coach traveling the entire route in “stages,” but through constant misuse it came to apply to the coach. A fresh set of horses would be staged at the next station, so the coach could continue after a quick stop to rehitch the new horse team. Under this staging system the resting, watering and feeding of the spent horses would not delay the coach. A stagecoach could be any four wheeled vehicle pulled by horses or mules, the primary requirement being that it was used as a public conveyance, running on an established route and schedule.

Waiting to get ready for the ‘Sounds of Summer’ parade.
