Time Warp Theatre: “Taxi! Taxi!!” (1960) – Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About London Taxis

Here’s a terrific look at the London Taxi world of 1960, one of the excellent Rank Cinema “Look At Life” series of shorts. Lots of London street shots, a detailed explanation of how “The Knowledge” is acquired, how the cabs are serviced, and overhauled, and even a whole section on how the mechanical meters are built and tested. Well worth the nine minutes.
