Postcard shows horse-drawn school buses on South Main Street in front of Sincock School, Caribou, in about 1928.

The buses were equipped with woodstoves that kept students warm during winter trips to and from school. Woodstoves were placed on gravel to prevent fires.

Students sat on benches that lined the bus walls. Driver's windows can be seen in front of the buses.
