At the peak of their widespread use, up to 7500 cabs were in use and quickly spreading to other towns (such as Dublin) in the United Kingdom and to mainland Europe towns, particularly Paris, Berlin and St Petersburg. In the cabin, a kind of flight, there were two occupants (three if they were trapped) and a chauffeur sitting on a suspended chair behind the car.
Passangers could give their directions to the chauffeur through a drop gate near the back of the canopy. You could have paid the rider through that trapdoor and he would have used a handle to open the gates so they could get out. Some cabs allowed the operator to control a mechanism that balances the cabin and reduces the load on the horses.
