18/06/1923 Checker Taxi puts its first cars on the streets

Checker Taxi was a dominant taxicab company based in Chicago, Illinois. It used the “Checker Marathon”, a vehicle produced by Checker Motors. Checker A series sedans remain the most famous taxicab vehicles in the United States, comparable to the London Taxi in its nationally renowned styling which went largely unchanged since 1959 to keep production costs down.
