DIARY OF FATHER TIME
In the year 1754 a body of enter
prising British merchants put on the
road a "flying coach" which, accord
ing to their special advertisement,
would, "however incredible it may
seem, actually, barring accidents, ar
rive" in London in four and a half
days after leaving Manchester." It
traveled at the astounding rate of
3.2 miles an hour. The Lord Chan
cellor of the time considered such
traveling as dangerous. "I was
gravely advised," he says,, "not to at
tempt the trip, as several passengers
had died of apoplexy from the rapid
ity of motion."
The history of the automobile is
unique, showing, as it does, a sudden
check to an invention worthy of far
better treatment than it received! In
1833 the popularity of horseless car
riages had reached to such a pitch in
England that the railway companies
were up in arms.
Taking advantage of two motor
accidents, the companies appealed to
parliament and in 1836 the fiat went
forth that in future every road loco
motive should be preceded at a dis
tance of 100 yards by a man carry
ing a red flag to warn pedestrians of
its approach. This law marks the
end of the first period of automobil
ists in England.
