Description

A young man runs at the front of a stagecoach, pulling one horse by the reins and looking at a man flinging his whip at the horse on the other side while the coachman and passengers on the roof look on.

Coaching Days and Coaching Ways was illustrated by Hugh Thomson and Herbert Railton, and shows no clear indication of which artist did what. It should therefore be noted that our attribution of this illustration to Hugh Thomson is no more than a guess. Thomson’s particular talent for character drawing, and attention to the difference in style between the two artists make it plausible, however, that for this book, Thomson was assigned illustrations which focused on people while Railton took care of the quieter depictions of buildings, courtyards, etc.
