I was sticking loads of stamps on stacks of envelopes today, for a big mailing we’re doing, and I started thinking about horses and carriages / wagons on stamps.

After an Internet search, I found these interesting specimens: a 1958 stamp celebrating the hundredth anniversary of Butterfield’s Overland Mail service to California; a 1974 stamp honoring the hundredth anniversary of the Chautauqua tradition in rural America; a 1983 stamp honoring America’s first streetcar (1832); a 1983 stamp honoring a 1926-era style of streetcar; a 1989 stamp with a Stagecoach; and this 1996 stamp honoring the U.S. Post Office’s Rural Free Delivery service.
