    1 thought on “Taxi!: Never a Dull Day - A Cabbie Remembers”

    1. I'm too young to know whether it's true or not, but the places are familiar, and it's the world my Leith born Mum and Breich born Dad inhabited in the fifties. I doubt it would be of too much interest to outsiders but it filled a quiet day.

    2. Douglas Findlay appears to be a lovely guy and probably a really interesting taxi driver, but his book just isn't that interesting.
