Punch,  43 (1862), 61.

Omnibuses that Know How to Conduct Themselves



News-Commentary, Drollery


Transport, Public Health, Political Economy

    Praises a new model omnibus from Manchester, drawing attention to its greater space, cleanliness, comfort, and speed, and hopes 'Cottonopolis' can 'send up to London a real Patent Safety Cab'. Believes the latter will greatly 'relieve our police magistrates of a very great portion of their labours. States that Punch will 'never say a word against the Manchester School again' if the Manchester cab stops the accidents caused by cabmen.
