Lady taxi drivers

In 1906 Paris saw the first lady taxi drivers. There was a lot of interest in these brave women. They soon learnt to drive motorised taxis too. I was pleased to find an excellent history in English which explains their story in more detail. Does image number 8 look familiar? Picture number 30 is of special interest to me.

Merry Christmas to you too Henry. Number 30 was taken outside the offices of the postcard publishers. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be here, not would the postcards of the taxi ladies.
