Discovering Horse-Drawn Carriages Summary

Discovering Horse-Drawn Carriages by D.J. Smith

There is more than a touch of romance about a coach and horses, whether in a royal procession and drawn by a team of ornately harnessed greys, or a mail-coach clattering over the cobbles of an inn's courtyard, pausing to replace its steaming horses with a fresh team. In the eighteenth century regular stage-coaches linked London with principal towns, and although railways took over long-distance traffic in the nineteenth century, horse-drawn vehicles continued to serve as cabs, station wagons, omnibuses and private conveyances until their eventual replacement by motor vehicles. This book explores the various types and their history and employments, and is fully illustrated.
