Information

The Checker City Cab Co. was inspired by one of the earliest taxi companies in the United States. Morris Markin, of Chicago, IL owned the taxi service as well as the manufacturing company that built the iconic vehicles. The "bumble bee yellow" colour was influenced by the founder of Hertz car rental and today yellow is the most popular colour for taxis. Designed to reflect the crowded, bustling city lifestyle, our Checker City Cab Co. has two garage bays, the open one features a taxi that has just been serviced. Trimmed with decorative lights over the doors, there is also a 1930s style lamp to light the driveway.

To light this building you may choose a Department 56 display anywhere LED light (4 x AAA batteries required - not included), or alternatively you may wish to purchase a Department 56 village lighting system, click here.
