Gorgeous pass no. 1676, issued for 1886 to HH Hurlburt. Preprinted signature of proprietor CW Miller. Ornate logo and design with vignette of a wagon with the company name printed on the side. Light green cardstock. Very good condition. Charlie Wright Miller's father established the second transit line in Buffalo in 1847, with an omnibus line of four vehicles that ran from Central Wharf to Cold Spring. Miller took over his father's business after his death. In 1872, he bought a building at 202 & 206 Pearl Street, added a coach and baggage express and the next year in 1873 he secured a contract with Commodore Vanderbilt to put agents of Miller's company on board all incoming New York Central trains. They took orders from passengers arriving Buffalo for their transportation and delivery of their baggage. He would eventually secure rights to do the same from every railroad line entering Buffalo.
