More Victorian terrain bits

Finally managed to get my horse and cart painted and posed with the Celtic Cross monument I made earlier.

And to accompany the picture, a factoid about Victorian England from here:

One odd point was that men in charge of a horse drawn vehicle were prohibited from leaving it unattended, in case the horse bolted. They still needed to pee however so a law was passed to the effect that 'the driver of a vehicle requiring to relieve himself can do so against the front off-side wheel of the vehicle providing he shouts 'in pain' loudly three times before commencing'. This may sound pretty unhygienic but remember the horses were depositing their urine and manure all the time.
