  • "In many respects the baaz of my childhood was in a transitional state between the horse and the the streamlined impersonal efficiency of modern transport. It took over from the farmer's pony that would not pass a pub and took his master safely home from market. More countrymen were 'merry' than on market days; there would be an occasional fight but mostly song, and the baaz would go roaring through the countryside. All along the green and twisted route it would stop at one farm gate after another, and the conductor would gently and paternally propel the owner to his own yard." P. 427.
