Cariboo Stage Coach RP BC Canada !
http://postcardguy.com/store/i.asp?507

This vintage card is nice! It pictures a RPPC view of an early unrestored wooden stage coach. It stands in an old leanto type building behind some chicken wire. Front of this RP reads "Old Cariboo Stage Coach At Cache Creek B.C.". A super Canadian Real Photo image!!! The little town of Cache Creek stands at the junction of the Trans Canada Highway and the Cariboo Highway. It is popularly known for its participation in the Gold Rush. In the early 1860s, the Cariboo Gold Rush was in full swing, and the Cariboo Wagon Road was being built to handle the traffic of miners and supplies north to the goldfields. Cache Creek is named after the habit of travellers hiding their 'cache' in a nearby creek (Bonaparte River) while they rested before continuing on their journey. Other versions of the origin of the name tell of a robber who stole and 'cached' gold from a prospector along the Bonaparte River. Back of card is undivided and is postally unused, with an "E K C Place Stamp Here" stamp box. Condition is very good as shown. Any lines or waves are from the scanner and not on the actual image. Your item is shipped to you safely in a rigid mailer.
