Ruby Tuesday: Wells Fargo Stagecoach

My entry for Ruby Tuesday this week is the Wells Fargo & Company stagecoach.
Carriage builder J. Stephens Abbot and master wheelwright Lewis Downing built the famed stagecoaches of Wells Fargo & Co. At their factory in Concord, New Hampshire, they perfected the design of this classic American vehicle. It was built high and wide to handle the rough, rutted roads of a new country.
Since 1852 Wells Fargo had rushed customers’ important business by any means – steamship, railroad, and, where the railroads ended, by stagecoach. At first Wells Fargo contracted with independent stageline owners. Then in the great enterprise of building reliable transcontinental transportation, Wells Fargo came to own and operate the largest stagecoach empire in the world.
