Audio recording of event on 5 April 2011

'Taxi!' book cover

Leith-born Douglas Findlay took his audience on a trip down memory lane in this hilarious memoir of his time as a cabbie in post-war Edinburgh.

Never one to turn down a fare, he encountered an extraordinary range of colourful characters and ended up in the most bizarre situations.

His was a nostalgic look back at Edinburgh's eccentrics in this romp through the 'demi-monde' that lurks beneath Edinburgh's genteel façade.
