Expensive and elegant, an eighteenth-century coach bespoke money, position, and privilege. An advertisement by coachmaker Elkanah Deane in the Virginia Gazette of October 23, 1773 let us know that these were originally in Williamsburg: "I made, in the city of New York, for his Excellency the Right Honorable the Earl of Dunmore, a coach, phaeton, and a chaise, which may now be seen by any gentleman that has an inclination." Carriage parades were a standard feature of society life in 1700s England. Owners got to show off, and the public got to gawk. Newspapers provided for their readers coverage rich in detail.
