London Taxis – a Full History second edition

Bill Munro


London Taxis: a full history

London’s taxis are famous around the world, as much a part of the capital as the red buses, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. Their story is a long and fascinating one, with constant challenges to the makers, owners and dealers

As in the original edition, this acclaimed book tells the story of the London taxi in detail, from 1897, when the capital’s first horseless cab, the Bersey, appeared, right up to the present day,. The book recounts the history of every major model and every known minor make, as well as the prototypes that never made it into production and all the political and legal manouevring and the troubles in the British motor industry that shaped that history

  • The takeover of The London Taxi Company by the Chinese auto maker, Geely
  • The announcement of the new Nissan NV200 and Metrocab
  • Pictures and details of new concept vehicles from The London Taxi Company and the Turkish auto maker, Karsan
