Miss Carrie Moore as Prince Rudolph, in Cinderella

Adelphi Theatre, 1908/9

The chorus in this scene are dressed as London Motor Cabs, with 'For Hire' flags displayed, the fare reading 2. 1s 6p. They also have hoods to cover their upholstery, and horns which they doubtless sounded during this dance routine! The emergence of the motor cab in 1904/5 might help to date this photograph, as the 'taxi' would have been a novelty exploited by the pantomime writers.
