A New Brighton coach
[ca. 1880]

Coaches as illustrated were operated in New Brighton from about 1861 by Jimmy Newcombe and from 1873 by Arch Hamill. Later the mail contract was taken over by D.W. Hamilton and held until 1881, after which it was taken over by the tram service. The route followed the Avon River most of the way and was little more than a mud track in the winter and a dust bath in the summer months
