Leeds City fun
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

I just realized something wonderful today, because for the first time ever, I looked at the windows of the taxis downtown. They all display big white stickers on the front, proving their licensing by the city, and what the stickers actually say is:

"City of Leeds Hackney Carriage."

Now, I have to admit I've never had an absolutely clear idea of what all those hackney carriages in 19th-century novels really looked like...but I'm pretty sure they involved a lot more horses and a lot less petrol.

It made my walk happy all the way up to campus.
