bridging the eras of horse drawn carriages and the first engine driven vehicles

1894 in Paris... that looks like a horse carriage in back, that wasn't changed at all, but hooked up to that early motor vehicle

Similar looking vehicle below is the Grand Duke Alexis in his carriage with a Heilmann front end , Paris 1899


Above is an electric coach built for the Queen Mary of Spain in 1896
from the Thrupp and Maberly coachbuilders in 1913 on a chassis from Thames Iron Works
