old taxi cab photo

Photo #8: Antique Automobile, a Taxi Cab from the Past!

My fetish with antiques hasn’t waned over the past few days. For today’s photo I’d like to share what I think is a perfect snapshot into our history as a civilization. Notice how this taxi cab is not only so old it’s no longer in use, the flat tires symbolize how much our civilization has changed over the decades.

If the tires were full then it might symbolize our our society is trying to hold onto the past, but that’s not the case. This clearly shows how the past is the past and how times have changed. I shared some other amazing antiques recently so please check those out if you haven’t already. I don’t expect my fascination with old stuff to shift anytime soon, so get used to this.

I think it’s important for younger generations to be reminded of our past, and automotive photos like this one do a great service in reminding our youth of where we all came from and how far we’ve advanced with technology. I hope you enjoyed looking at this photo. Feel free to use it for whatever you want because it’s in the public domain. Thank you.
