    I like that one, Werner. Looks like a variation on Santa Claus and his reindeer. :)

    An attractive stamp! I wonder if there was some technical reason for making the wheels on the front and rear different diameters?

    Hello Don and all others, I do hope that you are all well. I have not posted on this site since last year, but I do view sometimes.
    A few years ago I took my Thai wife to see the Gold State Coach when it was on display at the museum of London. The front wheels are smaller due to steering. the coach weighs four tons (4.48 us tons) (4064.2 kg) and is 24 feet (7.3 m) long, 8 feet wide (2.44 m) and 12 feet (3.7 m) high. and is pulled by a team of eight horses.

    Regards, James.

    Thanks, James. Interesting vehicle! The information about the difference in the size of the wheels makes sense.

    Good to see you back. I hope you will post often.

    Lacking a little detail Mr W. Salentin Sir, here is a slightly better view along with scarce color omission

    The chautauqua was still coming to the small town I grew up in during the late 1940s and early 1950s. We referred to it as the "tent show."
