Coaching Ephemera

The following are advertisements for Coaching Inns or timetables for Coaches, the first dated example being a post-coach timetable from the Castle and Ball, Bath in 1789.

Fly Waggons were a much slower type of coach, taking about 3 days to get from Bath to London.  Below is a coach ticket for three people, with an extra charge of 6d for porterage.

Below is an undated flyer for Nelson's Coaches used as a receipt.

Another undated flyer, this time for the Royal Mail and Coach Office, York House, Bath.  It's interesting from a personal perspective to see daily coaches from Bath to Warwick, Leamington & Coventry.
