This photo from 1952 shows Duffy's Taxi No. 5 fresh from a wash. The car is a 1951 Meteor, a Ford product marketed in Canada. The red and white colour scheme was a novelty. The Taxicab Board actually banned the use of such bright colours on taxis from 1935 to 1951. Duffy's Taxi was started in 1947 by Gordon Cherney.
