|Caption||A horse-drawn mailcoach (top) was a familiar sight in Lonon until 1848, when the railways took over the task. In 1829 George Shillibeer gave London its first horse-drawn buses (bottom) which ran from the City to Paddington at a fare of one shilling. Original artwork for illustrations on p5 of L&L no. 72 (1 June 1963).|
