Description
Charles B Newhouse (1805-1877) was an artist noted for his portrayals of horses and carriages and was active 1830-40. These aquatints are engraved by Richard G Reeve (1803-89) after Newhouse's paintings. They are amusing scenes of panic on the way to Gretna Green, Scotland where, until 1856, a couple could get married without a residence requirement or parental consent. One of the scenes is entitled "One Mile from Gretna - our Governor in sight with a screw loose!" which shows a couple being pursued, but the pursuer has lost a bolt on the wheel of the carriage. The other is entitled "A false alarm in the road to Gretna - 'tis only the Mail!", in which an eloping couple clearly think they have been caught and then find that the pursuer is only the mail coach!
