Beschreibung

Whether living in an urban sprawl, a sunny suburb or rolling countryside, the taxi is a mode of transport that no doubt every resident of the UK will use in their lives. So prevalent is it in British society that the black cab has become one of the most iconic symbols of the country and its capital. Here Danny Roth presents the most comprehensive history of the taxi service of Britain complete with in-depth appendices and a wide-ranging, fascinating collection of 250 taxi images. Beginning from the birth of the taxi, four millennia before Christ, through Victorian times to the present day with views on the future, no stone is left unturned in this history of British taxi service. Accessibly written and filled with technical detail, this is a volume no car or taxi enthusiast can do without.
