  • Description

    Item title reads: " 'Jixi' sir?' First of fleet of 2-seater cheap-fare taxis destined for London."

    Weybridge, Surrey

    M/S taxi cabby opens the rear door of a vehicle for a balding man and a woman. The cab leaves though a factory gate drives along a street with horses, carts and cyclists. It's quite small and painted in two tone. It leaves with a cloud of exhaust.

    Note: Did anyone complain about pollution from cars in 1927?
