China Old Tuck's Oilette Postcard Chinese Express, Horse Pony Mail Wagon, Street

Vintage Colour Art Artist Drawn Tuck's Oilette Old Post card. Ethnic Life. Qing Dynasty. Life in China. A Chinese Express. Horses Drawn Wagon. Postman, Postmen. / The Chinese are of a very slow and conservative turn of mind. Mails and messages are still carried across the remote country districts in wagons drawn by ponies, and during winter when the untended roads are nearly impasable the mails are frequently considerably delayed. The ponies are small, stubborn and under-fed, and curses and the whip are the only form of encouragement the drivers ever seem to use.
