Lonsdale wagonette, also known as Lonsdale bus or Lonsdale break, a style of carriage thought to have first been designed and used by the Earl of Lonsdale towards the end of the 19th Century, or may have been based on an earlier type of the 1860s. The main characteristic is the style of hood, which folds up from the sides and meets in the middle rather than folding back to front. This is one of many Victorian carriages donated by HM King Edward VIII in 1936.
