The iconic London Taxi is the only vehicle in the world to be specifically designed for hire work in cities, and since its introduction a great variety of taxis have travelled the streets of the capital. Illustrated throughout with many black and white photographs, "The London Taxi" follows the development of the taxi, painting an image of the changing lifestyles of Londoners through the context of the growing cab trade and the many different styles of taxi that have served the people of London.
