Today’s feature image is a follow up to yesterday’s post covering Batman’s Yellow Taxi Cab on display at the Hotel Sherman in Chicago, Illinois. The photo contains six of the Yellow Cabs on Washington Street at the intersection with State Street in the City. A Marshall Field and Company store is at the top-left of the picture.
Two and possibly three of the cabs have a “porthole” at the front of the driver’s compartment roof. All of the taxies also have one of these sun roof units above the passenger’s compartment; the last cab at the top-right of the photo appears to have its rear “porthole” in the open position. All of the collapsible “Landaulet tops” in the photo are in the closed position.
