It isn’t easy to imagine a world without the high-speed automobiles and airplanes we now take for granted. It’s fascinating to think of how what constitutes “fast” has been constantly redefined through the ages and continues to be with every passing day. In the 1800’s a stagecoach which could travel at 8 or 9 mph, and a small locomotive which could move twice as fast were amongst the most speedy forms of available transport, accessible only to the affluent.

Today’s post is a series of notebook sketches tracing the evolution of transport. IMG_6718IMG_6688IMG_6690IMG_6691IMG_6692IMG_6693IMG_6708IMG_6720
