Cornwall Radio Taxi – Cocktail Wheel

Cornwall Radio Taxi operated from a small dispatch stand on Water Street, just west of the Cornwall Community Arena ca. 1950.

Perhaps this local promotional item was in part meant as a way to say: “Don’t drink and drive”? The spinner can be rotated to provide the ingredient list for 50 different cocktails and promotes taking a taxi for weddings, funerals and trips. The two-digit telephone # gives a hint as to its age.

This is but one of many local artifacts donated by a member of the community. What’s in your basement or closet awaiting an opportunity to be shared? Please let us know.
