St. Patrick's Easter: 1911

St. Patrick's Easter: 1911

Easter 1911. St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York. George Grantham Bain Collection. View full size. Note the pair of Hansom cabs, named after the inventor (Joseph Hansom) and the type of carriage (cabriolet). Hansom cabriolets fitted with taximeters became known as taxicabs. Note the "curtain" in front of the cab -- to keep the passenger from having to see the horse do what horses do.
