British Motor Cab Company

Categories: Transport

Former public transport company, about which we can discover virtually nothing. 

Its premises appear in an old photo "Pickets outside the British Motor Cab Company's Garage" but the location is not given and doesn't look like the site of the plaque. The company may have had multiple sites.

We were hoping to see the Farm Lane building on old maps but nothing is conclusive: try 1893 map, 1894 map, 1938 map.
