Hansom Cab or Handsome Cab ?

A Hansom cab is a kind of horse-drawn carriage designed and patented in 1834 by Joseph Hansom, an architect from York. The vehicle was developed and tested by Hansom in Hinckley, Leicestershire, England. Originally known as the Hansom Safety Cab, its purpose was to combine speed with safety, with a low centre of gravity that was essential for safe cornering. Hansom's original design was heavily altered by John Chapman to improve its practicability, but retained his name.

Who knew these were very organized every night?
Seems better choreographed than some garages I worked for. LOL


I noticed the doors wide open on a warehouse filled with these "Hansom" cabs without their horses which I'm sure are kept in a nearby place. There was a steel picket fence to prevent me from going in , so I just poked my camera lens through one of the spaces in the fence and got a picture of something I always wondered about. Where are they kept every night? Now I know !!!

I saw a horse tied to a fence one night without the cab but I had a client in the car and we just looked at it and both said I hope the owner knows his horse is there. So now you know where they are kept and how the name was derived....The next piece of information you will find quite vital should you be in New York and need a different kind of cab.

Sooo if you are looking for a "Handsome" cab for a ride to your delight , well thats an easy find.....just yell "YO King of New York Hacks I need a Handsome cab !!" and hopefully for you , my handsome presence will arrive to take you to your destination....AND I smell a hell of a lot better than a horse to boot......really I do...so maybe I'm not even a prince of the "Hansom" cab, but I am still The King Of New York "Handsome" Hacks. ;-D

  1. Alas, you're a bit far away for yell for you, next time I have one martini too many (I'd promise not to tell the Bob Saget joke).

    So, question. These cabs used for actual transportation, or are they touristy things that cost $40 for half-an-hour around the city? I've only been in one of these things in Chicago, and I was terrified that someone would run us over.

  3. So, let's just say, that some farmgirl - who happens to LOVE the way horses smell - showed up in New York needing a cab. Would she think you stink? And should she still yell for you? :-)

  4. gnightgirl--yes , they are touristy things that charge a similar amount $35 to $65 depending on the amount of time you want to ride through the streets. With my horse face I'm definitely a better bargain.

    NYCtaxiphoto---I always wondered too, this city asks us a lot of questions daily doesn't it?

    Farmgirl_dk---well I LOVE the way horses smell too which is why I carry at all times my horse smell cologne for any farmgirls that need a taxi ..I can usually spot them a mile away , so I spruce up a few squirts and wala !!! I'm a "Hansom" cabbie for all farmgirls to enjoy !!
