THE "CAMBRIDGE TELEGRAPH" IN FETTER LANE, AND A COACH IN STORM AND FLOOD

THE

From the White Horse inn, m Fetter Lane, a coach with a name significant of speed, as then conceived, and indicative of destination ran northward. The date of the print after J. Pollard of the " Cambridge Telegraph " is 1828. Great discomfort and risk often attended the traveller by coach. A graphic picture of a coach being driven through a flooded portion of the road, with the water axle-high, is given in the picture by Henderson (top). If such weather was bad for the passengers, it was worse for the driver and postilions.
