"I was entertained, " says a contemporary writer, "with the Surprise and Amusement of the Common People when in the year 1725 a Chariot with six monstrous great Horses arrived here by way of the Sea Coast. An Elephant publicly exhibited in the Streets of London could not have excited greater L i62 CARRIAGES AND COACHES admiration. One asked what the Chariot was ; another, who had seen the gentlemen alight, told the first with a Sneer at his Ignorance, it was a great cart to carry people in, and
... such like. " And even in Johnson's day, when there were few coaches to be found in this part of the country, though a lighter vehicle called in old account books a cheas was sometimes used, public astonishment was great. Yet it was in the north of Scotland that military roads were constructed in 1726 and 1737 — not particularly good roads, but very necessary — and the first of their kind.
Swift in Apollo, or a Problem Solved, satirised the prevailing luxury. Compared with Apollo, he says : — " No heir upon his first appearance, With twenty thousand pounds a year rents, E'er drove, before he sold his land, So fine a coach along the Strand : The spokes, we are by Ovid told, Were silver, and the axle gold : I own, 'twas but a coach-and-four, For Jupiter allows no more.
