For today post: “Old Wooden Wagon”...

A picture was taken late in the night, (using a Flash light), driving along the Pearl Harbor Memorial HWY #10 from Phoenix to just before Casa Grande in MTN Park, most beautiful Old West museum...

Here is some and read about a little Wagon History...
Wagons, without them, the West would never have been won. No one knows when the first wagon as we know it today was invented but when some cave man figured out the wheel we were on our way. Wagons, horses, and mules were the only means of transportation for thousands of years. Wagons I guess you could say were the modern day equivalent of pickup trucks. Wagon manufacturing came into its own in the 1700’s as this country really started its western expansion. Wagons were manufactured in the east and shipped west to such points as St. Louis where they were used on the Santa Fe Trail.

In the 1800’s wagon manufacturers began springing up further west eliminating shipping cost. At first wagons were built in small shops and then sent to a Blacksmith to be “ironed”. But as production increased all the steps of manufacturing a wagon was incorporated into one place. There were small wagon shops that never turned out more than one wagon a week to large companies like Studebaker that advertised that they could turn out a complete wagon every seven minutes. In 1904 the Ft. Smith Wagon Company in Ft. Smith, Ark. built 10,000 wagons.

Tanks for visit, George

Hello George
What great memories this series of yours bring me; I loved western stories when I was a kid. Wonderful POV and compo, excelent detail and great sharp colours. Great mood.
Best regards, mb

Hello George,

What a trek you are treating us to!
This is almost like reliving 'Wagon Train'!

Despite the difficulties of the lighting, this shot is sharp and detailed. No refection or oe on the white.
It is so realistic, I could imagine a camp fire and a group of countryfolk sitting around singing songs and boiling coffee.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi george

Another fine shot from Arizona & the US south west, with good colour, lighting & sharpness. The old wooden wagon is well framed. Tfs!

Pozdrav George.

Prvi put sam pazljivo pogledao tvoju galeriju i moram priznati da ima sjajnih radova. Ono sto mi se posebno dopada je tvoja posebna tehnika frame -ovanja i potpisivanja fotografija. Vrlo interesantno.


Ciao George

Nice post my friend ...
Just yesterday I was watching TV in an old Western movie,
"Good, the Bad and the Ugly" and with a beautiful soundtrack
the great master Ennio Morricone.
And seeing your post now I remember the scenes and the beautiful visual.
Excellent post my friend, I liked to see him!


Zdravo Dzordz
