Wells, Fargo & Co. Messenger Bag

Wells, Fargo & Co. Messenger Bag
Wells, Fargo & Company was founded in 1852 by two executives of the American Express Co. who had a disagreement with the board of directors on the long-term vision for the courier delievery firm. They left American Express and founded their own express company Wells, Fargo to provide secured trans-continental delivery service from New York to California.

At one point Wells Fargo owned the much storied Overland Mail Co. and Pony Express service. These days, Wells Fargo is purely a financial services firm.
