Samuel Hobson was one of London’s premier coachbuilders catering to a royal and aristocratic clientele. He has been credited with revolutionising English coach design – having lowered the carriage towards the road and improved access. Having been and apprentice with Barker & Co of Chandos Street, Hobson started in business in Long Acre in 1815, gaining a reputation for innovation in design before financial troubles forced the closure of his business in 1837.
