A wild taxi cab is featured in this Chicago Sun-Times press photo dated April 9, 1940. The press release with it reads as follows: “A streamlined taxicab of the type soon to be but into service has been placed on display at the Hotel Sherman. The cab is equipped with portholes, one above the driver and the other over the passenger compartment. At right Frances Musinger is shown in the rear seat with the Landaulet top lowered. The new vehicles are to replace 1,200 cabs now operated by the Yellow Cab Company”. The Checker Taxi Company also plans to use this new type of cab. The Old Motor photo.
