Curatorial Spotlight. Crime & the Car: The Taxi Wars
Join us on Sunday, May 9, 2021 for the second of a three-part series looking at Crime & the Car. Part two will explore the Taxi Wars. Our professional museum staff will deliver a presentation and be on hand to answer all your questions regarding the subject. Competition between the Yellow Cab Company and Checker Taxi in Chicago was fierce and frequently violent with a number of shootings and deaths which peaked in 1920 and revitalized in mid-1921. This presentation will look at these crimes in detail as well as E.L. Cord’s association with The Checker Taxi Company.
This presentation is free to all members of the public with a regular museum admission and will take place in the Education Center at the Museum. For more information please contact the museum by phone at (260) 925-1444 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
