Stage Coaches, probably not - horse drawn coaches of some sort in some
areas until after WWI - and as a tot during WWII I can remember my
Mother and I being given a lift by the milkman on his horse drawn cart
after he'd finished his round when the last bus had gone by full.
Always good to watch - the horse was so well trained that the milkman
(who was also the farmer who owned the cows) could walk continuously
up and down the paths and drives delivering milk etc to customers and
the horse would have the cart in the right position for the milkman to
put back the empty milk bottles and take the next load off for the
next lot of customers ..... apologies for meandering off topic ....
