    Imperial Size "Stagecoach" Photograph Calistoga Springs, California, ca. 1890s-1910s. Later stagecoaches made that road famous under the three decades that Bill Spiers had a monopoly on freight wagons and stagecoaches over Mt. St. Helena. It was the Lawley toll road that made Middletown, and such spas as Adams, Seiglers, Anderson, Harbin and Caldwell. It should be noted here that the Calistoga terminus for Spier's stages was the Hotel Calistoga famous in itself to world travelers-whose owner and "mein host" was Owen Kenn.

    Very nice large size format photograph of stagecoach taken by Turrill & Miller of San Francisco. Shows a Stagecoach leaving a Speir's Stable and Stage line, full of passengers. Noted on verso Driver is Al Palmer the "Thorough brace" 18 in this group. Measures approximately 12.75" x 10.75".

    Fine, photo has a couple of small stains & mount has some small chips.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
