Today we are going back to the wild west with a visit to Thermopolis Wyoming to see how things were 100 years ago. The first circa 1908 post card shows three stage coaches absolutely full of people out in the middle of nowhere but my guess is they are headed to or from some of the many hot springs in the area.

The second circa 1908 postcard shows a man and woman in a small boat hooked up to one of the two wires stretched over the river. Again we have to draw our own conclusions but my best guess is he is waiting on those 3 stage coaches full of tourists so he can charge to ferry them to the local sights such as the Hot Spring Falls spilling into the Big Horn River in the background. Both of these antique postcards can be found in my Wyoming listings on my website along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! It will provide you with endless supply of fantastic views of days gone by.
