I used to drive for Steamline in what was called "the office car". This was a private hire but painted as a cab and new drivers were put on it whilst the trained to take their test. Once you had passed your test you moved over to the taxis. The office car had to be off the road at 2am so could not go all through the night.

Best wishes Peter

I know this is an old thread and in the "50's Nottingham"... wondering if anyone might know (or know of someone) that worked for DG Taxi's in 74/75 with the last name of Clark?  I know, really vague, saying that he went by "Nobby" doesn't help for a Clark.  Just taking long shots at this point.  :-)

If you go to YouTube and search Nottingham Slab Square 1950s there is a 1951 film about Old Market Square - and about half way through is a Wolseley Streamline taxi in back and white
