Driving a Cab: The Best Working Class Job There Is?

Quite good: Victoria Hannan’s portraits of London cab drivers, with stories. My favorite: Ray (pictured above). “Ray’s been driving cabs for 16 years. He thinks it’s the best working class job there is and that there aren’t many others that let you work every day of your life if you want to.”

A job that lets you work every day of your life = best job. 🙁

(Another favorite woke up at 4 a.m. everyday for three years to study The Knowledge, “a test which has been described as a bit like having a mental atlas of London in your head.”)
