This year continues with the series dedicated to carriages, an interesting subject not presently covered in Spanish philately.

The third issue of this series is dedicated to the Milord, an elegant vehicle conceived for short journeys and can still be seen today in some Spanish cities like Sevilla, where it is used mainly for tourists sightseeing trips.

It's a four wheel carriage, pulled by one or two horses, with forward facing seats for the passengers and usually has one hood that can be folded. The derrick or seat for the driver is at a higher level.

The ATM image show the reproduction of a carriage in the Museo de la Moto Clasica (MMC) de Hervas (Caceres) - Classic Motorbike Museum in Hervas, Caceres, Spain.
