The postcards are sometimes only one way to travel through the world and see all these beautiful known and unknown places. Here is my postcard's journey...
Western Stagecoach, Arizona, USA
Before the railroad era, a Concord Coach was the best form of transportation in the West. Until the early 1900's staged carried mail, passengers and baggage to small towns, settlements and remote mining districts. At an exasperating 5 miles per hour, travelers tolerated soaring heat, freezing cold, mud, dust, sometimes all in the same day.
