Love those 1920's pics, where did you find them?
Did a google image search, using the word "Waikiki"
You never know what you'll find under a waterfall

The Hawaii tourism board should be paying you by the post!
That much money would throw me into a tax bracket. I would become a blip on our Draconian Gov'ts radar.
How does this dispatch chore work? I am picturing that one of the drivers does it on the fly, and that you pass the chore around from night to night? But how do you do it from within the car?
The landline is "call forwrded" to the company cellphone. The driver who has that night's "duty" answers the phone. Asks the appropriate questions,
"Where is the pick-up?"
"What is the destination?"
"How many people?"
He then uses the cab's two-way radio to dispatch the call. We are not computerized.
The driver/dispatcher also must keep up with the location of every cab, who is where in the queues and take reservations for the next day. All this is done while also doing their duties of driving a cab.

Are you sure you are not a woman?
Hmmm. Let me check...
If my Gray's Anatomy is correct, then I am all male.
I learned to multi-task a long time ago. One of my first jobs was as a short-order cook in a diner that had greasy windows and a flickering neon sign that said "EATS". I was also a radio disc-jockey back in the days of 45 rpm records. Paid for my first year of college.
Both of those occupations required me to do a hell of a lot of things at the same time. And they had to be done correctly and in a timely manner. Radio stations don't want "dead air" and construction workers wanted their breakfast NOW!
ANOTHER ROYAL CAB
Snagged this one from San Francisco Taxi
Compared to the Crown "Vic" behind it, those London style cabs are really small. Look to be the size of a Scion.
Did anyone else notice any thing wrong with this picture from yesterday?
I'll post the answer tomorrow.
