This is another of the series. I don't know what the series is called, but it seems a depiction of the old west, so lets call it that.

In the American West, entrepreneurs battled for lucrative government mail contracts, freight, and passengers by operating a multitude of express services and stagecoach lines.

Throughout the westward expansion, the stagecoach lines bravely continued despite several dangers, including bad weather, uneven roads, hazardous terrain, and attacks by Indians and bandits.

Stagecoach travel was not comfortable for passengers, but it was safer than going it alone and frequently the only way to get around. It was improper to rest one's head on another passenger, and people were expected to sit up if they desired to sleep. Passengers also had to abide by a long list of additional regulations, such as not drinking alcohol, not smoking or swearing in front of women, and more.

Riding in a Stage

Creeping through the valley, crawling o’er the hill, Splashing through the branches, rumbling o’er the mill, Putting nervous gentlemen in a towering rage. What is so provoking as riding in a stage?

Spinsters fair and forty, maids in youthful charms, Suddenly are cast into their neighbors’ arms; Children shoot like squirrels darting through a cage- Isn’t it delightful, riding in a stage?

Feet are interlacing, heads severely bumped, Friend and foe together get their noses thumped; Dresses act as carpets-listen to the sage; “Life is but a journey taken in a stage.”

— From: Six Horses by Captain William Banning & George Hugh Banning, 1928.

I would not want to have traveled by stagecoach at all. My butt and back would have been sore as all get out. There is no way I would have been able to refrain from cursing.

I can imagine travel via stage coach wasn't much fun. At least with the wagons, you could walk and you had fresh air to breathe!

Nice silver bar! Again, right up my ally sis! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day!🤗😘😍💕🌸💟 !LADY !LUV !PIMP

According to historical records, the fastest stagecoaches could reach speeds of up to 15 mph, while the slowest ones could barely manage 5 mph. I will surely be sleeping, or daydreaming, or reading, or praying! !LOL
!LUV ya much, sis 🤗😘😍

That is a very clean looking well designed bar.
Can you imagine having to travel a long distance in a stage coach,
especailly if you had to ride on top and there was a storm or it
was winter.
