Waiting for the Stagecoach
Passengers are seen coming out of a country inn to catch the soon-to-arrive stagecoach.
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.
