ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " U "



Wagons Ho for the U.S. mail. This old stagecoach used to haul the United States mail to all the local towns of the Sierra Nevada foothills.
Remember to join the others posting their choices for the letter U. Some may be unusual or utterly rediculous or maybe unidentifiable but ultimately they are wonderful. Its up to you. (:0)

Very nice.
I don't think what I posted for the letter U is very unusual, in fact it is every where in the world.

Lovely old coach! Interesting to see how mail was delivered in the old days. Thank you for this piece of history.

Great choice for U, Photo. It's mind boggling when you think of all that's happened in the last hundred years or so!

RuneE said...

Maybe we should send them an E-mail about this post? ;-)

Great nostalgia. It is so amazing how far we have come.

I wonder how long it took to get a letter across the United Stated in that mail wagon.

I am happy for all of your family members! ½ year is a long time without seeing each other.
I wish you enjoyable time together,
blogging can come after that :)

interesting photos. I'll bet the stagecoach was never used to deliver junk mail.
