Les Femmes Cocher / 11

Introduction / 10

Picture (left): A French taxi driver in Paris [1920s]

At least some of the femmes cocher moved on to taxi driving. There were a number of women taxi drivers working in Paris before World War I.

Did the femmes cocher open the door for the generations of women taxi drivers who followed them?

Hopefully someone will take up the task of delving into these interesting questions.

This picture gallery of more than 100 femmes cocher postcards exists thanks to the collectors and vendors who preserved the cards and who made photos available on the web. A link to the postcard owner's web page appears below each photo (the postcard may no longer appear on the owner's web page if it has since been sold).
