Waiting for the Stage is a painting by American artist Richard Caton Woodville, depicting a scene of three men in a tavern commonly used as a waiting room for stagecoaches. In the painting two men appear to be playing cards while the third stands beside the table holding a newspaper. If you didn't know, stagecoaches were a popular mode of transportation in the 18th and 19th centuries, and they were used to transport passengers and mail between cities and towns. They were typically drawn by teams of horses and operated by a driver. Stagecoach travel was slow and uncomfortable, with passengers enduring bumpy roads and cramped conditions. Despite the challenges, stagecoaches played an important role in the growth of transportation and commerce during their time. // Image Credit: Richard Caton Woodville, 1851, Courtesy National Gallery of Art, Washington
