NEWHOUSE, Charles B.
The Roadsters Album.
London: Published by Messrs. Fores, 41, Piccadilly, corner of Sackville St. Jany 2nd, 1845. This delightful work was doubtless conceived during the last days of the stagecoach. Although the railway was reaching a zenith of speculation at the time, this work was published in 1845, no inkling of modernity intrudes into the plates. The watercolourist Charles B. Newhouse (1805-1877) ingeniously illustrates the excitement of nineteenth century stagecoach travel through the English countryside, not sparing us with all sorts of accidents and mishaps.
