By Brian West
This book is devoted to the taxicab built for its purpose (i.e. not just a saloon car with a taxi sign on the roof). This book could not have been produced without the help and the extensive archives of renowned taxi expert Brian West. Many taxi makers are described, including Beardmore, Austin, Nuffield, Metrocab, Adams, Argyll, Birch Bros, Morris, Belsize, Napier, Renault, Winchester, W&G duCros, Wolseley, Vulcan and Unic, coming up to date with the TX4 and Asquith cabs of more recent years.
