Wells Fargo wagons were a common sight on dry land, but you could watch one on water: Snowflake rode a ferry every morning to work in Manhattan. Snowflake lived in Jersey City, New Jersey, where the Erie Railroad ended. Wells Fargo wagons and horses crossed the Hudson River on a ferry.
Snowflake’s daily routine began with hitching up and boarding the ferry to New York City. There, she led a team of horses that helped deliver money and important business packages to customers in New York City. Noted illustrator Edward Hopper depicted a Wells Fargo wagon, led by a pristine white horse, aboard a ferry for the March 1917 cover of Wells Fargo Messenger, the company’s monthly magazine in that era.
All-white Snowflake was released in fall 2011. This Plush Pony sported a festive red blanket.
