As is to be expected, large-sized animals (such as horses and cows) will produce
large-sized droppings. These droppings can cause considerable discomfort to
other road-users and pedestrians.

This may be the reason why animals were not allowed in certain places. The
picture here shows a sign posted in 1909 on Cavenagh Bridge. The sign can still
be seen today. It is a Police Notice banning vehicles (carts and carriages)
exceeding 3 cwt, horses and cattle from the bridge.
