gettingold, they're called wagons rather than carriages, but they are horse-drawn. The four rural routes at Lynn were, I believe, created in 1900.

According to the "Rural Route Directory Out of Lynn, 1904," James Bascom began his route at 8:20 am and covered 25 5/8 miles. Around 1908, he received permission from the Second Assistant Postmaster General to use his Brush automobile to cover his route "if and when, in his opinion, the weather and the condition of the roads would permit it."
