Traveling around Chicago's western suburbs via The Morton Cab Company. Berwyn Illinois USA. July 2007.

Growing up in Chicago during the 1960's and 70's, was filled with happy memory's of an occasional Family ride or two in a Morton Taxi cab. When I was a little boy growing up back then, The Morton Cab Company was using early 1960's vintage Checker Marathon Motor Company sedans and station wagons in a maroon and cream color scheme. Some were in a cream and brown color scheme. Many years have passed by, and the classic Checker Marathon and Nash Rambler taxi cabs, have given way to Chevrolet Caprices, Ford Crown Victorias, and now Chevrolet Impallas. The old cream and maroon color combinations have since given way to a bright and solid red color scheme. After all these years, the Morton Cab Company is alive and well. Moton taxi cabs are still seen serving Chicago and the immediate western suburbs of Cicero, Berwyn, Oak park, Riverside and other local destinations today.
