actual image size: 32cm x 17cm


Oil painting by John Cordrey (active 1799-1822), showing a stage coach with a full complement of pasengers including a wedding party. The coach was made by William Thomas & Co, and is plying a route between London and Birmingham with stops at Coventry and Dunchurch, Warwickshire. A milestone on the right shows that the coach is eight miles from London. Cordrey specialised in painting the network of coach services and improved road travel in the 19th century which provided healthy competition to the early railways.
