Maybe a Woods electric? I'll do some checking......

Great pic, thanks for posting.

1904 Woods Brougham. The clearance looks too high. Maybe a hybrid?

Great hunting Jerry! Looks an interesting set up.

Jerry,
That looks close. The chauffeur seat may be a little lower in the original pic, but hard to tell. I wonder how many of these electric taxi's were made, and how many survive?

Rob,

Yes the seat height is different but everything else is so close.... Hard to say.

My favorite 1905 taxi. Not an electric:

Jerry, just remembered, weren't Elec Veh Co and Columbia one and the same (EVC made Columbia)?

A taxi company in London had ten Model B taxis.
