City Bus, Late 1800s

This city bus has the look of a stagecoach and possibly was converted from an old stagecoach. Stagecoaches made their way to Iowa to meet the need for mail delivery to western settlements. Equipped with seats for passengers, they became a popular means of passenger travel. The first regular stagecoach line in Iowa began operating in 1838.
