An antique delivery wagon or buckboard, adds some noteworthy interest to this New Mexican landscape. This once prized
possession, often made of pecan wood, met all of the rural family's transportation needs, just as today's minivan or SUV. With
the advent of automotive mass production, the hand built, horse drawn buggies, phaetons, coaches and a wide variety of wagons
faded out quietly. Before the 1900s, ordinary citizens depended either on horses or mules for land transportation, and often times simply walked.
