US Mail Stage Coach Circa 1915 on the Oregon Coast

US Mail Stage at High Tide on the Oregon Coast, circa 1915

The Mail must get thought, circa 1915
These brave and persistent mail carriers from the past race the surging tide to make their appointed rounds.  Up until the early 1930's the road systems along the Oregon Coast consisted of Indian trails and a few very muddy roads.  So the vast stretches of sandy beach along the Oregon Coast served as roads for all manner of transpiration north and south.

This reproduction postcard is postmarked 100 years later in 2015.

The sender writes:
We drove all over the Oregon Coast today!  I saw elk, sea lions, ate Dungeness Crab and fish.  What a day!
