An exquisite carriage pulled by two brown bullocks sits outside a lavished estate in 1900. A purple, satin-like canopy is draped over the roof so that its passengers may keep cool, and its seats are lined with a plush velvet fabric. Standing beside the carriage is the coachman who holds a whip in his left hand as he stares at the camera with a stern, grim expression.The carriages complement the lavished appearance of the estate, and it's clear that its residents deserve to travel in only the finest means of transportation.
