TL1829 : Cabbies' shelter, Hitchin Market Place

taken 9 years ago, near to Hitchin, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Cabbies' shelter, Hitchin Market Place
Cabbies' shelter, Hitchin Market Place
To be found near the NW corner of the market square. According to a sign attached to it, it was moved here from its original site at Hitchin station.

It seems unlikely that any will have survived, but in London similar structures - though perhaps rather larger - used to be a familiar sight near the busier cab-ranks. I think I'm right in saying that some of the largest were in the Brompton Road, not far from Harrods, and that there were others near Victoria station.
