Seasons Greetings from the Horse-Drawn Mail Coach by

A digital painting, using Classics in DAP, of a horse-drawn mail coach at Newmarket Heath, Suffolk, England .

The out of copyright image is from “The life of George Stephenson & his son Robert” by Samuel Smiles early 1800s. Image used is from the Gutenberg project.
In Great Britain, the mail coach or post coach was a horse-drawn carriage that carried mail deliveries, from 1784.
The coach was drawn by four horses and had seating for four passengers inside. Further passengers were later allowed to sit outside with the driver. The mail was held in a box to the rear, where a Royal Mail post office guard stood.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:

    A grand greeting card Dennis! Oh sometimes I long for another time period but reality tells me there is good and bad in every time as to focus on the good each day. ~Sam

  • Yes, I always see the beauty in the pictures of this time but can you imagine having to sit on top of this coach in similar storms :(
