"Made in the late 1840s, it descended in the family of Freeman Cobb of Brewster, Mass., who is thought to be one of the men pictured. Cobb worked for Adams Express, a Boston transport service established in 1840, and the company uniform is probably that worn by the men pictured. He arrived in Australia in 1853 and he set up his own coach company there using two Concord coaches that he brought with him. "
