The Route de Poissy shows two horsemen, one fat, on thin, riding to the left followed by a pair of panting dogs; the Route de St Cloud shows a small yellow and black, two-wheel coach (pink wheels), drawn by a single elderly horse and crowded with passengers. A hat and a wig are in the process of being lost by one gentleman poking his head out the window. Sold only as a pair.
