Drawing of a stagecoach driving to the left down a dirt road, the four horse team in full gallop. Two passengers ride on top of the coach along with the driver and bugler; several passengers inside can be seen through the windows. Trees line the road, with the top of a church or cathedral visible directly behind the coach and the spire of another church barely visible in the distance at the end of the road. A river or stream occupies the forground and enters an arched tunnel that disappears under the road.
