Regarding the main photograph on the memory lane page (March 3 edition).

My name is Tony Baker and I am sat in the car with the CAB 1 book while fellow author Peter Birchenhall is pictured next to me.

I had been taxiing around York for many years and ended up talking to Mr Birchenhall, who said we should write a book about some of the stories during my time in the taxi business.

CAB 1 contains many of the stories and we managed to sell 3oo copies. I now do talks to various groups about the tales in the book in aid of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.
