Mail coaches for the north, having started early in the evening from inns in the City of London, are seen here outside the Angel Inn, Islington, where they made their first stop to pick up more passengers. On the left a coach for Liverpool is already underway again. Behind it on the right an orange-seller offers fruit to the occupants of the Manchester coach.

December 1989
