This detail from a 1911 panoramic view of Winnipeg's grain exchange district shows a touring car parked on the city hall cab stand. It may of course be a private car, but if it is a taxi it is evidence that some cab owners were employing standard touring cars instead of town cars, limousines or purpose-built taxi models well before the jitneys appeared on the scene in 1914 and 1915.
