Horse-drawn Vehicles by D.J. Smith

Book Description

Outlines 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.

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.
