NOTE

It is with great pleasure that I acknowledge my indebtedness to Mr. George A. Glover, kindly placed at my disposal valuable information concerning the early history of omnibuses, and cabs and several rare pictures, which are now reproduced for the first time.

I desire, also, to thank Mr. G. A. Thrupp, the venerable author of "The History of the Art of Coach-Building," for permitting me to have access to his interesting collection of illustrations of vehicles, and to reproduce several engravings dealing with the subject of this book. For a similar I am greatly indebted to the Worshipful Company of Coach Makers and Coach-Harness Makers.
