Printed Ephemera: The First Birmingham S...
Print of a poster from May 1731 advertising the first regular stage-coach from Birmingham to London. The journey took two and a half days; but notice the get-out clause 'if God permit', allowing for anything from bad roads (which were common), poor weather (this is England) & any other eventuality that may be thrown at the journey. A regular stage-coach means that Birmingham's traders and manufacturers have a cheaper & easier way to reach the capital to make & maintain business connections
