From the Publisher

In Belfast Taxi the city’s taxi drivers – of all ages and all backgrounds – tell their stories in their own words, covering everything from the beginnings of the public-hire and private-hire industries and the early days of industry giants like Value Cabs, to the dark days of the Troubles and the lives of the drivers that work at Belfast City Airport.

Join Lee Henry as he tours the city in the company of the city’s drivers, including Charlie, who drove members of the press throughout the Troubles; Majella, one of the very few women driving a West Belfast Taxi Association taxi-bus; Ralph, who worked for one of Belfast’s private-hire firms from 1950; and Billy, a fully qualified blue badge taxi guide.

Based on interviews with over thirty drivers, this is an authentic and candid chronicle of the city told by the people who know it best.
