pts001a. A wide London street, with a "Cabbie's Rest", a hut where cab drivers could obtain char and a wad, tea and a sandwich, at sensible prices. Most have now disappeared, so where was this one?

pts001d. "It was Elgin Avenue, a cab rank. As a 9 year old living next door I watched filming and got Herbert Lom's autograph." This came in 5 years from Richard Tibber after Aidian's now photo.

pts001dn. Towards Maida Vale and Abercorn place, these cab shelters were normally put around posh areas so the cabbies wouldn't slope off to get some affordable food and the nobs would always have cabs within servant despatching distance my theory is the household telephone being more widely available killed them off, still a cab rank you can see a cabbie whiling away the time reading the 'Daily' Bring Back Hanging' in my picture.
