Royal Mail coaching oil ‘Portsmouth to London’ by H. F Jones (English, op, 1860–1870)

An oil on canvas of a Royal Mail ‘Portsmouth to London (Bull & Mouth)’ coach laden with passengers and luggage crossing English heathland, by H. F. Jones (English, op, 1860–1870). The coach wearing the correct Post Office red wheels, and black panelling but with yellow doors, bearing the livery of the Bull and Mouth, Portsmouth Bull & Mouth London” above an image of a bull. The Bull and Mouth, Bull and Mouth Street (London) was a famous London coaching inn. Signed bottom right " H. F. Jones ". English, circa 1865. “Bull and Mouth” The great coaching-inn of Aldersgate Street, in the old time, was the “Bull and Mouth.” The original name of this inn was “Boulogne Mouth,” in allusion to the town and harbour of Boulogne, besieged by Henry VIII. But the “gne,” being generally pronounced by the Londoners “on,” it gradually became “an,” and it only required the small addition of “d” to make “and” of it. The first part being before this made a “bull” of, it was ultimately converted into the “Bull and Mouth.”
