Horse-drawn Vehicles by D.J. Smith
Book DescriptionOutlines the development of horse-drawn vehicles from their inception to the present day. It is an evocation of state and civic dignity, recalling the efforts of magnificent Shire horses and humble but hard-working cobs or 'vanners'. Although mechanical transport has replaced stage-coach, hansom cab and family brougham, there has been a revival of interest in leisure and competitive driving, as a result of which old vehicles have been restored and new types introduced. This book will assist the identification of different vehicles and describes their purpose, history, working parts and the materials used.

Following the Industrial Revolution the ingenuity of Victorian manufacturers produced an enormous range of horse-drawn agricultural machinery. This book describes these machines and includes drawings of many of them, as well as photographs.
Discovering Horse-Drawn Carriages, Paperback (December 1985)
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. This book explores the various types and their history and employments.
