Open four-wheeled 'Sociable' horse drawn carriage, made by Joseph Cockshoot & Co., Manchester, c.1895.

In 1830 the railway came to Manchester. Despite this, the horse remained an integral part of Manchester’s transport system for the next 100 years.

This carriage was made in Manchester by Joseph Cockshoot & Co. The company were widely known for their high quality craftsmanship.

In the early 20th Century motor cars began to replace horses. Cockshoot adapted to this change by beginning to build car bodies. In 1902 the first Cockshoot garage opened on Deansgate. The company went on to supply car bodies to Crossley Motors and Rolls Royce amongst others.

This coach was made by Joseph Cockshoot & Co in 1895. It is called the ‘sociable’ because the seats allow the passengers to face each other.
