In this first photo from Knott's Berry Farm (from sometime in the 1950's), we can see a conestoga wagon on the grass, with two guys possibly hitching up some white horses. Just to the left you can see a bit of what was an old water wagon. The flowering trees in the background (Leptospermum? Crepe Myrtle?) add a lovely touch of beauty to the scene. I wonder how long the conestoga wagons continued to run?
Fortunately you can still take a ride on the Berry Farm's stagecoach. Yet another thing to put on my "to do" list... the last time I was at Knott's, the line for the stagecoach was pretty long, and moved very slowly.
