Kurt A. Dolnier (Contemporary American) Four in Hand archival pigment print on archival paper 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches signed and numbered by the photographer from an edition of 25 The of History of Coaching: The tradition of coaching grew out of the 18th and 19th century mail runs in England, which later made their way across the Atlantic to the United States. The horse-drawn mail coaches were eventually replaced by railroads, but nostalgia led to the development of coaching as a sport. The Coaching Club of New York was formed in the latter part of the 19th century, eventually becoming part of the social fabric of Newport in the summer. The Wetmores, Vanderbilts and Belmonts were all active members. Kurt A. Dolnier Photographer: Coaching and the Newport Mansions are nothing new to me, having published the Newport Mansions book in 2010 with the help of the Preservation Society. Those photographs recreated an early 20th century light in The Breakers, Marble House and The Elms and Rosecliff - as if color film had existed in the early Twentieth Century. These images expand upon that feeling to bring you into the intimate world of coaching in Newport.
