Carriages as Status Symbols

Full details of the Museum of London's conference in November

Pomp & Power – Carriages as Status Symbols

are now available on the Museum's website

Quote: 'The conference brings together experts from around Europe and the USA who will explore different aspects of the coachbuilding trade in London and examine particular coaches made in Britain and Ireland from the 17th to the 19th century. The social history of carriages will be discussed as well as French and British influences on British carriage design.'

But sadly, a singular lack of horses in the programme!
