The road coach Venture (c. 1900) was made by Brewster & Co. of New York. This style of carriage was used for public conveyance in England for almost 50 years, prior to the advent of the railroad. The Venture and the Viking — another road coach — were used by Alfred G. Vanderbilt. A coaching enthusiast, he drove both on the London-Brighton road between 1908 and 1914. You can see them this summer when you visit The Breakers Stable & Carriage House.
