Rickshaw

30 Jul, 2012 by admin  0

Omur Black takes us to the narrow laneways of London late at night when an army of rickshaw drivers look for customers as the city’s famous theatres spill their patrons on to the rainy streets. From their base in an autopark underneath Great Portland Street and Russell Square, the rickshaw drivers converge on central London where they battle nightly with the police, who try to move them on. But the law is ambivalent about non-engine vehicles, and dates back to a time when horse-drawn vehicles crowded the city’s streets. And so, it’s a thriving business, bringing a colourful array of rickshaws into an already-crowded city, and cycling their customers around London’s famous landmarks.
