Black Hackneys in London

Motorised hackney cabs in the UK, traditionally all black in London and most major cities, are traditionally known as black cabs. The name 'hackney' was once thought to be an anglicized derivative of French haquenée—a horse of medium size recommended for lady riders. The first documented 'hackney coach'—the forerunner of the more generic 'hackney carriage'—operated in London in 1621. A hackney of a more expensive or high class was called a remise.
