Photographer's Note

One of the London icons - the black cab. Incidentally that one is silver.
This is an FX4/Farway model. Out of production for many years.
Behind the car one can see a booth which is so called London Cabmen's Shelter, an eatery for cab drivers. Once such booths were quite common in London. Nowadays there are just 13 of them. They are Grade II listed buildings but are still in use. I spotted this one in the corner of Russell Square. I've read it stood in Leicester Square earlier.
