|INSIDE:||140 b&w photos, 20 colour photos|
It is now just over a hundred years since the first motor cab took to the road in London. Bill Munro has compiled a complete history of the motor taxi-cabs that have plied for trade on the streets of the capital from then right up to present day.
Including information on the well-known cabs from Austin and Metrocab, the book also covers less well-known machines from Citroen, Beardmore and Unic, and a whole host of even more obscure vehicles, some of which never got past the prototype stage.
Illustrated with many archive photographs, this book written by a cabby and experienced motoring historian is set to be the best volume available on this fascinating subject. And they werent all black, you know?!
