Summary  A prairie schooner and concord stagecoach, their work days behind them, rest easy in a restored Sutter's Fort in this vintage postcard ca. 1925. A smaller version of the freight-hauling conestoga wagon, the prairie schooner was the vehicle of choice for families and parties heading west during peak migration from the late 1830's until the Civil War and the emergence of the railroads. Although this stagecoach is a later model, in October of 1850 a daily line of stages ran from Sacramento to "Rough and Ready and Nevada cities....in point of safety, comfort and speed this line is unequaled in the New State of California."
